Listening to an upset child
If a child is upset, (s)he can yell, hit, swear, throw things, avoid contact or behave intense in an other way. The child shows that an important need is not met. In his or her heart the child actually wants connection and safety.
In this workshop we will discover how to give space to the emotions of the child, to support the child to connect with his or her inner self and to express their deeper feelings and needs. And as an extra, by doing this, the relationship between you and the child grows.
For whom: For everyone living or working with children.
When: 23 April 2020, 20:00-21:30 (CEST)
How: ONLINE on ZOOM (we will send the link to the meeting to every registered participant)
