Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, my in-person workshops have been cancelled until further notice. However, we can see that emotional dysregulation is all around us right now, and I want to share what I have learned from Dr. Adele Lafrance, so we are all better able to support one another through these challenging circumstances.
The Edmonton Regional Learning Consortium will be hosting me to offer my webinar, entitled "Emotional De-escalation During COVID-19" twice on Wednesday, April 8, once in the afternoon and again in the evening. Both webinars will be free of charge and open to anyone who wants to learn how to co-regulate intense emotions in others. This webinar is particularly helpful for teachers, parents, front line workers, or managers who may find, during these uncertain times, that they are noticing a sharp increase in emotional responses from children, students, clients, employees or co-workers.
Here are the links to register. Feel free to circulate this to others in your circle.
Emotional De-escalation During COVID-19 April 8, 2020
1:00 - 2:15 pm: http://erlc.ca/programs/details.php?id=8374
7:00 - 8:15 pm: http://erlc.ca/programs/details.php?id=8375
This webinar will help you understand how to respond to intense emotions in others in way that is compassionate, supported by brain science, improves interpersonal relationships, and is highly effective in helping people return to a more flexible, calm, and receptive state of mind. It is open to anyone, but highly recommended for parents, teachers and front line workers.
In the meantime, whether I see you on Wednesday or not, please practice safe physical distancing, wash your hands, check up on your neighbours, and reach out to connect with the many services available online if you feel overwhelmed.
We will get through this together!
The dates in purple are open to the public to register.
