Guest speaker: Helping children to manage anger and strong emotions

Help to clear the way for learning

In this 2-hour webinar, staff from primary school settings will discover actionable strategies and effective techniques to support children to manage their anger and strong emotions.

Children experience a wide range of emotions during the school day.  Sometimes this starts with frustration but it can quickly become overwhelming and impact behaviour.  Helping children to manage frustration, anger and other big emotions helps to clear the way for learning and engaging positively with others.
