I’ve Got a Feeling – Raising Our Comfort Level in Working with Emotions

Presented by Anna Vagin, Ph.D. (3 hrs)

Feelings are a crucial component of relationships and as SLPs, teachers or parents we need to be comfortable talking and working with children around feelings and emotional learning, This workshop focuses on (1) building understanding of emotional development and what we know about the development of empathy in students with social learning challenges, (2) exploring visual supports to facilitate work on feelings, and (3) providing specific suggestions for expanding emotional vocabulary and (4) demonstrating how to incorporate emotions into our teachings about social relationships.
