Mountain Youth & Vail Valley Foundation – Tiny Guides for Social Emotional Wellness
This session guides participants through the use of two Tiny Guides, Boundaries and Emotional Hijacking, to teach emotional intelligence and promote well-being for both adults and young people. Building on the last session, participants will comprehend core social emotional concepts, understand their impact on their work and relationships, and equip them with the tools needed to put them into action.
Having a shared vocabulary around emotions is essential to young people’s development and enhances their ability to self-regulate, manage frustration, and practice effective coping strategies. It is also essential to creating healthy, emotionally agile communities and families.
This session will provide:
- Learn strategies to discuss the content of the Tiny Guides with young people, in the classroom or at home
- A guide through the Boundaries and Emotional Hijacking Tiny Guides
- Gain a deeper understanding of emotions, why they matter, and how to talk about them to support the young people in your life
- Connect to how to create a sense of belonging in the group and/or class
