Event description

Description

When a child is having difficulty regulating their emotions, they are not always able to verbalise this, and there are many possible reasons behind that including the child may be having sensory overload. Therefore, as parents and/or professionals we need to be able to assess the difference between sensory and emotional regulation. By exploring some basics on the activities of “how hot does your engine run” for sensory stimulation, and “zones of regulation” for emotional regulation, we can begin to establish the difference between the two.

This workshop is predominantly an experiential workshop on learning a wide range of emotional regulation exercises that can help with many children, adolescents and teenagers that the participants will take part in so that they can embody the experience they will be trying to teach their children, adolescents or teenagers

Because this workshop is more experiential rather than a teach the teacher workshop (due to the limited duration), it will focus primarily on experiencing a wide range of emotional regulation exercises rather than teaching them, so that participants can embody that experience before passing this to the child, adolescent, teen. It is therefore more advantageous for parents and professionals who already have experience in teaching their child, adolescent and teenagers how to learn a new activity, therefore may not be suitable for young infants and children. The workshop however will break mindfulness activities into steps so that they are easier taught, which can act as a model for the participants to begin to think about how they could begin to teach some of their children, adolescents and teenagers the regulating exercises they will be participating in during the workshop.

It may also be more advantageous to have previously attended prior workshops on sensory, anxiety and anger by this trainer as they will already provide a good basis of participants to make sense of the exercises they will be practicing, which will also aid in their teaching.

The Empower project is a Big Lottery funded initiative through the Reaching Out Supporting Families Programme which support Families across Mid Ulster and Antrim & Newtownabbey Council areas. The focus of the project is to support children under 12 with Autism, Dyslexia and Dyspraxia, their parents and the wider family circle to enhance confidence and learn together to develop skills to support their children.
