Emotion Coaching with Children and Young People in Schools

Promoting Positive Behaviour, Wellbeing and Resilience
Table of
Emotion Coaching (EC) is a universal communication strategy which supports children and young people to self-regulate and manage their stress responses. Originally noticed as an effective way parents communicated with their children around challenging behaviours, Emotion Coaching has been shown to be highly successful in educational settings too. This is why the authors pioneered the research and application of Emotion Coaching into UK (primary and secondary) schools and community settings. The book includes straightforward descriptions and practical tips, with signposting to resources, case studies and vignettes to illustrate its practical application in educational settings. It supports adults to promote empathetic responses to challenging behaviours and situations, helping children and young people to understand their emotions and learn to manage them and their behavior in the longer-term.

An accessible and practical guide to support teaching staff and parents in adopting and embedding Emotion Coaching into practice
Based on neuroscientific evidence and own research finding, the authors have placed emotions and relationships at the centre of Emotion Coaching. Written in an accessible and engaging manner, with plenty of examples from practice, this volume provides sound foundations of the science behind brain development and its application to practice for emotional regulation. The publication is highly recommended for professionals, who work with children of all ages and across different settings (e.g., schools, family, and community) and seek meaningful frameworks to anchor their intervention strategies. -- Dr Theodora Papatheodorou, Research Fellow - Norland College The authors effortlessly bring the concept of neuroscience into daily practice and all areas of life, through Emotion Coaching. This practical guide is second to none in its scientifically proven approach to nurturing children's behavioural development. -- Dr Mine Conkbayir, Early Years Author, Researcher and Trainer Research suggests that classroom learning, memory recall and social functioning are all affected by the process of emotion. If a child is not emotionally ready to learn then no amount of work differentiation or punitive threats will ameliorate this issue. In 'Emotion Coaching with Children and Young People in Schools', educational and community practitioners are offered a clear and structured guide to supporting learners with emergent social, emotional and mental health needs. Professionals are encouraged to regain control of their own emotional responses in the first instance, before engaging with distressed children 'in the moment' using the evidence based Emotion Coaching approach. Informed by Bowlby's Attachment Theory and located within a paradigm that includes nurturing schools, Theraplay, restorative practices and zones of regulation, Emotion Coaching offers a direct and powerful intervention that explicitly teaches children how to label emotions, to process emotions and to find solutions. If emotions are 'the glue and gunpowder' of human connectedness, then coaching children how to regulate their emotions should be prioritised in every school curriculum. This accessible and practical book is the ideal place to start. -- Dr David Colley, Oxford Brookes University
