Course Spotlight: Emotion Coaching

Emotion Coaching is a research based method from the Talaris Institute and the Gottman Institute that gives caregivers a way to help children learn about emotions. Research shows that when caregivers value and guide emotions using this important method, children do better in many ways.

These children tend to:

  • Form stronger friendships with peers
  • Have higher self esteem
  • Regulate their moods more easily
  • Be more successful in their problem solving skills
  • Bounce back from emotional events more quickly
  • Get sick less often

Emotion Coaching helps prepare children from birth to 5 years old for the challenges they face throughout their lifetime. A child’s ability to delight in the happy times and recover from the bad ones is a key part of emotional health. By learning and practicing the 5 steps of Emotion Coaching, you can make an important investment in a child’s future.
