05/09/2019 09:30






About this event

This workshop is designed for anyone working with children or young people whose levels of anger have become a source of concern. 

It will explore mindfulness-based stress reduction and cognitive techniques that have proved effective in helping regulate and manage emotions like anger and anxiety. 

Key learning:

  • Helping young people to understand what anger is and where their anger comes from
  • What the cognitive approach tells us about anger and what our brain does when we experience angry feelings
  • The trigger, escalation and crisis phases in the Arousal Cycle
  • Mindfulness exercises to help children manage their angry feelings – learning through practice.
