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. Learning in Webinars -Introduction to Emotion Coaching and how it can improve relationships with your child/youth -Understanding the role of emotions -Linking Emotion Coaching to neuroscience -Reviewing Emotion Coaching approaches
