Emotion Coaching for Parents and Caregivers

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:
Validation: letting someone know we understand why they feel, think or act a certain way.
Support: Then we provide emotional and practical support using strategies like reassurance, limit-setting, redirecting, collaborative problem-solving, teaching skills, etc.

A webinar on Emotion Coaching is available to parents/caregivers through the Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board, Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board, and Hamilton Family Health Team.
