Emotion Coaching for Parents and Caregivers

The pandemic has increased stress for children and youth – and this has challenged the parents and caregivers who support them.

To support parents and caregivers in their important role, the Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board has partnered with the HWDSB and Hamilton Family Health Team to offer a series of 90-minute emotional coaching webinars.

Emotion coaching is a communication strategy that can calm the brain in as little as 60 seconds and help improve relationships. Emotion coaching has two steps:
Validation: letting someone know we understand why they feel, think or act a certain way;
Support: Then, we provide emotional and practical support using strategies like reassurance, limit-setting, redirecting, collaborative problem-solving, teaching skills, etc.

Learn how emotion coaching can benefit you.
