The children will be taken on a journey through a series of fun activities, including physical challenges and video games such as Minecraft, to build their understanding and skills in emotional intelligence. It’s our goal to helping your little exploding emotional creeper become a patient & persistent minor.
Emotional intelligence plays a central role in people of all ages realizing personal, academic and professional success. Resilience is an area of emotional intelligence that has become a key focus of many schools. However, EQ is a much broader skill base that includes the ability to identify, use, understand, and manage emotions in an effective and positive way. A high EQ helps individuals to communicate better, reduce their anxiety and stress, defuse conflicts, improve relationships, empathize with others, and effectively overcome life's challenges.
Helping children to developer EQ can have many tangible benefits including:
- reducing the use of phrases such as “That’s not fair! I can’t do it! Awwww…come on!”
- making study less of a chore by gaining an appreciation of delayed gratification
- developing self-motivation – the ability to do what needs to be done without the need of threats from parents or teachers
- self-acceptance and keeping ones power against bullies, life’s tuff stuff and learning to be an upstander not a bystander.
This full day workshop will utilise technology, drama and a lot of fun to help children develop their skills in the five components of emotional intelligence: self-awareness, self-management, motivation, empathy and social skills. Students will come home more aware of their emotions and how to manage them positively.
