Session Outline:

This is a comprehensive programme of support for children affected by early attachment difficulties and trauma, it includes evidence-based strategies for supporting children’s behaviour and well-being based on recent neuro-scientific research.

This workshop will introduce the strategy of Emotion Coaching as an evidence-based, practical communication tool which can be used by all practitioners in schools to foster emotional literacy in children and young people, and to support behavioural self-regulation and mental health.

This session will review the neuroscience behind Emotion Coaching, highlighting important neurobiological and neurophysiological research which is enriching our understanding of emotional literacy and communication. It will relate these insights to common behavioural challenges that might be encountered by staff in different contexts. It will consider some of the practicalities and challenges of implementing Emotion Coaching into everyday practice. It will include some practical exercises and provide some illustrations of applying Emotion Coaching in practice for all age groups primary and secondary.
