Calming the Storm

Calming the Storm is an 8-week group designed to support children and preteens in learning emotional regulation skills in a fun and engaging environment. Both a group for children ages  7-9 and a group for pre-teens ages 10-13 will be running.

Using activities, crafts and discussion; those in group will have the opportunity to explore their ability to self regulate while learning skills and strategies to cope with their emotions in a supportive setting with their peers.

Topics explored include:

  • identifying emotions
  • anger & frustration
  • conflict
  • problem solving
  • how our brains work
  • coping strategies

A group for parents/guardians is held at the same time in another room. This provides support to the parent/guardians(s) and encourages families to practice and discuss skills together between group sessions.
