Emotion Coaching training

Why doesn’t a behaviour policy based on rewards and sanctions work with children who have experienced trauma and unmet attachment needs?

Emotion coaching is about developing the best possible responses to the behaviour of children and young people ‘in the moment’, intervening with the child as the behaviour is happening.

Emotion Coaching helps everyone; it helps all children and young people, including those who are struggling that we don’t know about and those more resilient children and young people who experience a challenging event.

It can also help those who are struggling with particular challenges like bullying, exam pressure or life events such as death, divorce or poor health.

It allows us to develop good relationships that build resilience and an understanding that poor attachment behaviour does not have to be a barrier to relationships.
