Emotion Coaching for Parents and Caregivers
Thursday, May 13 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
The pandemic has increased stress for children and youth – and this has challenged the caregivers who support them. In response, Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board (HWDSB), Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board (HWCDSB) and the Hamilton Family Health Team (HFHT) invite caregivers to explore Emotion Coaching in a series of 90-minute webinars and/or a four-week parent/caregiver group. WHAT IS EMOTION COACHING? 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.
