Emotional Intelligence (EQ) encompasses awareness, understanding, and the ability to express and manage one’s emotions. Dr. John Gottman developed “Emotion Coaching” based on the principle that with practice, children can learn to improve their emotional self regulation. Parents play a vital role in teaching and helping their children master these essential life skills. Anchorage therapist Mandy Casurella joins Line One to us discuss an approach to parenting that focuses on identifying and validating a child’s feelings.
