Anger Management, Emotional Regulation

What is the Managing Big Emotions and Finding Calm Support Pack?

This printable is based in CBT to support emotional regulation through self awareness and also explores mindfulness to discover ways to calm the nervous system.

It is ideal for children who struggle with understanding big emotions, or the way they respond to challenging emotions such as anger, anxiety or frustration. It is also a great educational resource for any child, teaching them how thoughts impact their feelings and actions using the CBT triangle model and through a creative Sea theme!

Our 'Managing Big Emotions and Finding Calm' printable is a fabulous teaching resource for those wanting to support children's emotional regulation in an engaging and child friendly way. The pack provides a toolkit of resources that can be flexibly used in wellbeing sessions as and when needed, or to deliver an intervention around the sea theme.

How can this pack help me support my students or clients?

Sea themed graphics are used to help children understand the experience of big emotions and how regulation strategies are helpful. Through the analogy of stormy seas and anchors, children will understand how big emotions are a normal human experience, whilst also realising that regulation is how we ride the emotion storm waves.

  • deepen their understanding of emotions
  • develop emotional intelligence
  • understand challenging emotions as a temporary state
  • realise they have the ability to stay in control
  • learn to respond in a manner they choose
