This episode of the podcast, Therapist Uncensored, explores the importance of social emotional skill-building for young children…and for grown-ups too!
The podcast features a conversation with child specialist, Lindsey Kealey, who developed a trauma-based, neuroscience-informed program that uses social emotional learning and problem-solving strategies to support positive decisions and healthy relationships. In this episode she shares strategies for teaching children how to regulate their emotions, utilizing the “Three C’s Method,” (connect, calm and collaborate). This method can inform the way we interact with ourselves and with others.
