As the saying goes, parenting does not come with a manual. But if it did, the one manual I would recommend to every parent would be on Emotion Coaching. Emotion Coaching is a research-based approach that parents can use to teach their children how to regulate their behavior and emotions. No matter what parenting struggle you may be experiencing, one of the most important things you can do for your children is to help them become emotionally intelligent individuals. Most parents would do anything to give their kids the best possible chance to succeed in life. What many parents may not know is that research shows a child's emotional intelligence quotient (EQ) is an even greater predictor of success academically and socially than their intelligence quotient (IQ).
This 2 1/2 hour workshop is designed to provide an introduction to Emotion Coaching but will also be tailored to participants' specific parenting challenges. Each participant will receive an Emotion Coaching parent handbook that provides greater depth to the material presented.
By the end of this workshop, you will be able to:
1. More effectively respond to your child's expressions of emotion and age-specific behavioral challenges
2. Apply the 5 steps of Emotion Coaching with your child(ren)
3. Communicate with your child(ren) about your own feelings in healthy ways
4. Problem-solve with challenging children (coercive, explosive, or implosive)
