Understanding Emotional Regulation

Home > Understanding Emotional Regulation

Everybody experiences many different emotions throughout the day. As adults we tend to be able to identify these emotions, their cause and choose a coping strategy so we can deal with unwanted emotions in an effective and timely way, before we become overwhelmed. Many young people lack one or more of the above skills, this course will look at how we can support young people to better understand their emotions and build the skills required for resilience, wellbeing and emotional regulation.


We will look at several different strategies and interventions to support emotional regulation. This course is designed as an overview, there will be the opportunity to ask for other more detailed sessions during feedback.


Delegates will have the opportunity to ask questions about planning for inclusion and strategies.
