Understanding the role of emotions is key to improving relationships with your child or youth.
Emotion Coaching is a communication strategy that can calm the brain in as little as 60 seconds and help improve relationships.
Emotion Coaching has two steps:
letting someone know we understand why they feel, think or act a certain way.
Then we provide emotional and practical support using strategies like reassurance, limit-setting, redirecting, collaborative problem-solving, teaching skills, etc.
