Mindful Emotion Coaching in Somerset
The project has got off the ground with great energy thanks to the enthusiasm from champions ..... Dr Janet Rose from Bath Spa University has led the way in all 5 districts with an exceptional presentation linking the neuroscience of brain function with emotion coaching. Dr Sarah Temple of EHCAP followed Janet's whistle stop summary with a chance to ponder and reflect with mindfulness and a piece of cross agency work on risk management and safeguarding.
The champions are now starting to prepare for the cascading arm of this project - the first to put together a powerpoint presentation is Gill Gillot , Mental Health Lead with Yarlington Housing ......
We have now got an Emotion Coaching Facebook Page up and running - thank you Kate Field for kick starting this...... if you become a friend you can post photos and help spread the word across the county.... Emotion Coaching tweeting is also up and running......
We are really keen for champions to get involved with other projects including:
MyRIAD research project into the effectiveness of mindfulness in schools (WELLCOME funded)
Anna Freud Centre Schools in Mind - see also flyer re promotion in schools attached below
