Emotional Coaching: Strategies For Parents

Saturday Speaker Series

Special Event

Presented by Kathie Sarles, M.Ed., HRC Early Childhood Specialist

The Saturday Speaker Series offers presentations that cover topics that are relevant to all of our families and service providers.  They are presented by HRC staff who have a wealth of knowledge and experience in their areas of expertise.  Presentations are scheduled on Saturday mornings for the convenience of families and service providers.  Participants will have the opportunity to view the presentation and ask questions. 

With increased experience, comes increased emotion.  Emotions can be scary to a child and cause dysregulation. Helping a child identify and understand their emotions is key to helping them to respond appropriately, and have less meltdowns.  In this presentation, you will be introduced to emotion coaching, a parenting style that allows children to recognize and understand their emotions.  You will learn the 5 steps of emotion coaching and reflect on how to use these steps at home with your child.  Emotion coaching is a systematic approach to building social emotional skills with over 30 years of research.  The content of this presentation is geared towards families who have children ages 0-5 years old. 

Currently, all offerings will be scheduled as Zoom meetings.
