This module provides guidance on helping children bring to mind and talk about the different body sensations associated with different emotions.
Learn how to teach about the concept of an Emotion Trigger to help children identify the things that happen to cause or ‘trigger’ emotional reactions and responses.
This module will support you to teach about the concept of emotion regulation including strategies for feeling better when experiencing unpleasant or uncomfortable emotions.
How do children come to understand and articulate Emotion Intensity? Find out what’s involved in quantifying and expressing how strong an emotion feels.

Once you’ve worked through the Getting Started training and have completed your first roll-out with pupils, the nature of the Emotion Works ‘spiral’ curriculum is to revisit the key concepts with learners over time using different teaching stimuli and a variety of resources.
This is where our EW Library comes in. In this area of the website you will find our full archive and ever-growing bank of Digital Resources and Practice Ideas.
