Children that are emotionally intelligent have less anger and better social skills.
Anger management is the most misunderstood and poorly handled intervention. Social skills are the most sought-after and diverse intervention for children. But how come this is the case? Why aren’t these subjects discussed more frequently? And why are we taking so long to offer children with assistance in this area?
Learn how to use an emotional intelligence program created by your teacher to treat both anger and social skills deficits. You will learn about the advantages of this curriculum for children as early as four years old, including how it helps them regulate their anger, deal with disappointments and frustrations, and even learn how to be excellent friends. Case studies and group roleplays will provide you with a far better knowledge and appreciation for how to teach the Good Choice Wheel, a visual tool that encapsulates four coping skills that every kid need.
