In this episode, I talk to Alyssa Blask Campbell about supporting and intentionally teaching self-regulation.

Or as Alyssa would say, “Helping tiny humans process big emotions”.

 

In this episode, we delve into the difference between coping mechanisms and coping strategies, what self-regulation is (and isn’t), and myths about how children learn to become increasingly self-regulated.

What You Will Learn

  1. The difference between coping mechanisms and coping strategies and how to use them to help children (and even yourself) process big emotions
  2. How the way self-regulation is “marketed” often misses the point by focusing on children learning self-control vs. expressing emotions, and why its important to let children express how they feel even when it is inconvenient to you
  3. How to set or maintain boundaries with children while also giving them the opportunity to process their emotions
  4. Why we should stop using the word “reinforcement"
  5. How sensory integration plays a major role in emotional regulation
  6. What the collaborative emotion processing (CEP) method is and how to implement it to respond to children’s emotions in a way that builds their emotional intelligence
