- 3-hour SUTQ-approved social/emotional training
- Offered for free
Most bullying prevention programs focus on high school or middle school. But by then, the processes and behaviors that cause bullying are already deeply embedded and hard to correct.
“Helping Children Express Mad Feelings” is different. This training will help early childhood professionals identify typical and atypical mad behaviors by observation. Once identified, they will help children modulate their mad feelings (small, medium, big) and give children the words to express their mad feelings – thus avoiding discipline and punishment that result from “acting out”, and developing self-advocacy skills and self-esteem.
This training will also help early learning professionals identify atypical “mad” behaviors (with respect to cultural differences) and assist parents in finding resources to help their child succeed.
