Emotion Coaching: A practical strategy to support young children’s wellbeing and behaviour

This workshop will introduce the use of Emotion Coaching with young children. Emotion Coaching is a practical tool which can be used by all nannies to foster wellbeing and help young children (including toddlers) to manage their behaviour more effectively. It will outline the ‘why, what and how’ of using Emotion Coaching. Evidence suggests that children who are emotion coached achieve more academically, are more popular, have fewer behavioural problems, fewer infectious illnesses, and are more emotionally stable and resilient.
