We are very excited to be launching a new Early Years Interest Group. This will be an opportunity for us to come together and talk about all things Emotion Coaching for our littlest people. This event will run three times a year, and the first one will be online:
Tuesday 24th October 4pm - 5.30pm.
Whether you run or work in a nursery, are an Emotion Coaching UK practitioner or trainer, or have a growing curiosity about using Emotion Coaching within the Early Years...everyone is welcome!
Emotion Coaching is being used by an increasing number of Early Years Professionals to support children’s emotional development and well-being. Those working with the youngest babies are utilising attachment behaviours, which enable children to feel seen, safe and regulated. This key process sets children up for the ability to regulate their stress responses as they grow.
In the toddler years, we are teaching children about their impulses, understanding the emotions of others and their own and modelling (lots!) how to be in good relationships. As children grow, we can focus more and more on reflective skills, problem-solving, and adapting our responses.
For all childcare professionals, Emotion Coaching can be a valuable tool for promoting healthy emotional development in children. Our first Early Years Interest Group meeting will be a mix of introductions, small group discussions, and some content from us. We are planning some great guest speakers for future meetings and look forward to facilitating the growth of this wonderful community. The event will be run by Dr Janet Rose (ECUK co-founder), Esther Glaser (Early Years Advisor) and Shana Laffy (ECUK Practitioner Trainer/Therapist).
