Workshops@GS presents Helping Kids Cope with Their Emotions | Presented by Marja Baseler | Wednesday, 13 May | 08.45am | Yoga Studio

Children are confronted with issues that adults often overlook or are oblivious of. At times, do you find it hard to understand their behaviour, and vice versa? These feelings of uncertainty and anxiety are indeed part and parcel of growing up, yet can certainly get out of hand we are dealing with our own personal pressures. Marja will introduce you to a method for kids she developed on how they can learn to show their emotions in a mutually considerate way. With their specially designed programme 'How do you feel today?' they help children to identify and express emotions and verbalise their mental pain or trauma.

For example, children boarding at the institute of deaf children Karya Kasih in Ambon, Indonesia don't speak about their feelings or express themselves. When they feel sad or angry, they just smile. Yet when intensively practiced and thoroughly explained, they actively participated in drawing their feelings. Many children now drew sad faces representing how they miss their parents and siblings instead of just smiling. Later on,they were then able to discuss what they can do when they feel angry, anxious or sad.
