Emotional Communication & Children

What is Emotion Coaching & Why Does It Matter?

This course will be presented at the Crossroads of America Adoption Conference (CAAC) and will teach Emotion Coaching to prospective adoptive parents, adoptive parents, and adoption professionals. Emotion Coaching is a research-based tool developed by Dr. John Gottman that can help you teach your child to manage their emotional experiences. It is a five-step method for guiding your child in how to respond to his or her feelings and how to use feelings while solving problems. Social and Emotional Development helps children:

  • Connect with parents and caregivers
  • Get along with friends
  • Succeed in future relationships
  • Increase intellectual potential
  • Become more self-reliant
  • Manage their emotions and reduce frustration

Becoming an Emotion Coach for your child will support valuable skills that will last a lifetime! This course will be offered at the CAAC from 4:20 – 6:20 pm at the Harrison Center for the Arts. The cost is $50 per family. Register now!
