Code: SCH/20/44 Emotion Coaching (Cancelled)

This course is an introduction to Emotion Coaching and it's practical application in schools.

Based on research by American Psychologist John Gottman, Emotion Coaching uses moments of heightened emotion and resulting behaviour to guide and teach the child and young person about more effective responses.

Through empathetic engagement the child's emotional state is verbally acknowledged and validated, promoting a sense of security and feeling 'felt'.  This activates changes in the child's neurological system and allows the child to calm down, physiologically and psychologically.


Course Instructor: Katherine Mahoney and Imogen Hagarty
