Practical Classroom Strategies for Helping Children with Emotional Regulation

Educators often have the important job of helping children to emotionally regulate. A child’s anger can be emotionally and physically draining for everyone involved. This workshop will empower educators to proactively and warmly help children during these challenging moments. The workshop will begin with an overview of the neurobiological and developmental roots of aggression, followed by an exploration of triggers that cause dysregulation, with a final in-depth focus on relationship based tools and strategies designed to nurture wellbeing and regulation in a child.

Instructional Objectives:

  • Introduction to the neurobiological and developmental roots of aggression and anger
  • Exploration of triggers which fuel emotional dysregulation
  • Identifying tools and strategies for coping with anger
  • Discussion on the significance of connected relationships
  • Develop an understanding of Restorative Justice Practices
  • Research backed classroom management strategies to help children during challenging moments
