Foundations & Self-Awareness of Emotional Development 

As adults, our ability to support young people in identifying and managing their emotions starts with our ability to do the same. In this experiential workshop, participants will deepen their understanding of how people interpret and feel emotions; how they personally experience hot buttons and emotional activation; as well as explore self-regulation. Time will be spent considering the ways our own emotional self-awareness can influence our work with youth, and identifying techniques for modeling empathy and emotion management in youth programming.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the framework for SEL generally, and the emotional domain specifically.
  • List common emotions and how they are frequently experienced in the body.
  • Practice skills for identifying hot buttons and self-regulation when experiencing emotional activation.
  • Understand the role past experiences and social identities play in how people experience and interpret the emotions of others.
  • Identify techniques for modeling empathy and emotion management in their organizations.
  • Plan next steps for incorporating concepts learned about emotional self-awareness into their work with youth and in their programs.
  • Assess readiness to implement empathy and emotion management skills with young people
