All of our feelings are important
Facilitated by Child Counsellor, Kirsten McLeod.
This 4 week programme provides children with a warm and nurturing environment that teaches them how to foster healthy and positive relationships with themselves and others. The development of social and emotional skills promote’s children’s ability to have an awareness of their feelings, manage big feelings, show empathy for others and resolve conflict. When children are taught strategies for recognising and labelling feelings, welcoming feelings as all feelings are important and managing them appropriately, they are less likely to act out frustrations at school and elsewhere.
Week 1: Knowing me (self-awareness)
Week 2: Taking care of strong feelings (self-management)
Week 3: Sharing and caring (social-awareness)
Week 4: Wrap-up (bringing it all together)
