Our group will first aim to help participants understand and identify emotions in themselves and others. We will then address the connection between thoughts and feelings, and support participants in changing any unhelpful thoughts. We will collaboratively build a "toolbox" with tools to help your child cope with hard feelings like anxiety and anger.
This course will use discussions, activities, games, between-session projects and reflection time to engage your child. We will focus on fun and engaging activities that encourage learning through play.
