- Identify how and why rage is different than anger, and discover specific practices that empower you to respond in ways that deescalate and heal rather than escalating and deepening the hurt.
- Learn about our emotional guidance system, reflect on the three modes of emotional socialization (modeling, responding and instruction), and explore how our experiences impact how we express our feelings.
- Apply the Five Steps for Self-Regulation in the context of anger and make a plan for implementing them in your workplace.
- Discover the foundational components and intent behind a Calming And Recovery Environment (C.A.R.E.) as an alternative to or enhancement for In School Suspension, and learn how to utilize it to help children who experience rage.
We Have the Choice to Shift From Avoiding and Suppressing to Embracing and Changing
The uptick in anger and rage that we’re seeing and experiencing is a progression from the fear, loss and uncertainty of the pandemic. It provides a means to propel us forward. When we learn to recognize, honor and act constructively on the important messages embedded in these feelings, we are able to create the lasting change we so deeply desire for ourselves and the children in our care.
