Counselor Tools: Emotional Regulation Lesson & Presentation
Are you a #counselor in a school or a private practice? Are you seeing the mental health of your students or clients take a nose dive? I know that's what I am experiencing within my work right now. Any time is a good time to enhance and practice emotional regulation. But in this moment, it is a necessity.
Working as a #StudentAssistanceCounselor in schools, part of my responsibility is working to increase the mental health and wellness of the student population, and the school culture, at large. One way I accomplish this is by introducing myself into classrooms for mini-lessons. In recent years, topics that have become staples in my classroom lesson repertoire are emotional regulation skills, social skills, unplugging from technology, mindfulness, and overall mental health education.
As a result of the current effect of Covid-isolation/anxiety/depression, these topics have become more important than ever and are worth being on repeat throughout schools. Below you'll find a presentation I created to teach various emotional regulation skills and to introduce the topic of tending to our emotions and #stress. The presentation is created within #Prezi and is free for you to use. I also created a handout to go along with the presentation, so the students have something tangible to take away and practice with.
