EPIC. Emotional Processing to Improve Connection.
By participating in EPIC, your child will gain the skills and attitudes to increase their social and school success. Children in early adolescence have not fully developed their abilities to think about long-term consequences and to use logic and reason to solve problems and decisions. In addition, at this stage the influence of their peers is magnified. There is increasing evidence that social–emotional skills—in the form of understanding emotions of one’s self and others, the ability to regulate emotions, problem solve, and engage in prosocial behaviors—will provide a foundation for a lifetime of success. All of these areas will be covered during this four-week series. Your child will have the opportunity to engage with peers through fun role plays, hands on activities, and video modeling.
Topics will include:
· Empathy and Communication
· Bullying Prevention
· Emotion management and coping
· Problem solving, goal setting, and decision making
