Emotion Coaching

Emotion coaching is a technique that was originally developed to help parents better support their children and has since been adapted for use in education settings.  Specifically linked to the nurture principles language is a vital means of communication and all behaviour is communication, emotion coaching is designed to help children understand their emotions and learn strategies to help support them.

This is achieved by adults being able to:

• attune to the child or young person’s emotions
• recognise that negative emotional experiences provide opportunities to develop positive relationships 
• acknowledge and validate the child or young person’s emotions
• help name their emotions and problem solve
