Our term 4 social skills group program will be focused on building emotional intelligence to help children notice, label, accept and problem solve when emotions run high. 


This new program to The Social Learning Studio emphasises two core concepts. 


Firstly becoming aware of, accepting and understanding our emotions because they help us to understand what's happening for us and what we need for ourselves.  For this reason, emotions are vital.  We want and need them and don’t want to ignore, deny or push them away.


Secondly, while all emotions are valid not all behaviours are acceptable. Over the five week program we will explore appropriate, respectful and safe ways to express emotion and then, how to problem solve. 


This group program is based on the research of Psychologist and Academic John Gottman. This program is called Bloggers Journal and will encourage participates to keep a video diary each week to track their learning, practice and progress. Some students may choose to share their video diaries during group sessions to help us deepen our understandings, reflections and learning.
