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.
