Emotion Education as a Means to Enhance Social and Emotional Health of Caregivers

A session at Priester National Health Extension Conference

  • @AbellEllen

Wednesday 17th April, 2013

9:40am to 10:40am (PST)

Our abilities to perceive, understand, express, and regulate our emotions provide the foundation for our mental and behavioral health and our socio-emotional well-being. A great deal of evidence suggests that our emotions are important influences on our behavior and have consequences for the quality of our relationships. This session will provide an overview of an educational approach that addresses how emotions influence caregiving behaviors and health across parenting, child care, and family caregiving contexts and how to enhance adults’ awareness and practice of four core social emotional competencies.
