DESCRIPTION
A 6-week workshop to help kids learn, review and polish social-emotional regulation skills to help children to deal with the requirements of the school environment in a healthy way.

The way children interact with their peers and handle their emotions can set the stage for success or distress as they develop and confront the individual and social challenges of growing up. The ability to accurately recognize one’s emotions leads to better impulse control and self-regulation, while taking perspective and practicing empathy will inform good decision making and negotiating conflicts.

Sessions will focus on learning about emotions, perceptions, responses to conflict and coping skills as well as how our thoughts, behaviours and emotions are linked. We will draw on art and play therapy techniques, as well as CBT based approaches such as role-play and mindfulness practices in order to foster the social and emotional development of your child. The overall objective for these sessions is to equip your children with an increased ability to self-manage their emotions and to demonstrate better communication and relationship skills.
