Emotion Coaching: moving from behaviour management to emotion regulation approaches in practice
The refreshed narrative of CfE (Education Scotland, 2019), places children and young people at the heart of education, recognising relationships as fundamental to learning. This training session introduces an approach of Emotion Coaching (Gottman, 1996), which identifies that emotions matter to learning and provides examples of how this may be facilitated in practice. Grounded in theory relating to emotion regulation, Emotion Coaching offers a practical, empathic and brain-nurturing approach to supporting children’s emotions and subsequent behaviours. This course is suitable for adults working with children who wish to move away from traditional discipline and behaviour management techniques towards an emotionally regulatory approach.
