When working with families who find they flip their lids a lot and struggle to find their River of Wellbeing I recomend using the framework in the EHCAP Family Wellness Programme

 To find out more about Emotion Coaching specifically I recommend :

John and Julie Gottman The Heart of Parenting -OnLine- life time subscription $59 USD 

Tuning in to Kids OnLine- annual subscription of $99 ASD - designed for direct access by parents but parents having difficulty emotion regulating will need you to run through it with them with opportunity to discuss. 

Both these resources can be used to support The EHCAP Family Wellness Programme   and EHCAP's free e-learning for parents


The aims for this project :

  • to understand the effects of adversity in childhood on long term physical and mental health outcomes using an Adverse Childhood Experience framework 
  • to build skills in insight and empathy through Mindful Emotion Coaching to support staff wellness and communication
  • to increase awareness and understanding of the neuroscience behind behaviour and social emotional development

Free Resources for Staff and Parents


Hand outs and Powerpoints for Workshops


You may find some of the discussions make you feel emotional especially when looking at the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) data in the Resilience documentary and during the second workshop when we run an exercise where you look at an ACE questionnaire. If you feel you would like to access emotional support please click this link. 

Staff who are attending workshops as learners  can leave feedback here :  Feedback Link.

Before your first workshop you will be invited to register with the site which will mean you can access our powerpoints and resources.


The first  workshop is an introduction to  three forms of stress- positive, tolerable and toxic - together with skill building in those areas most likely to be affected by early adversity- Dan Siegel's Hand Model and John Gottman's Emotion Coaching.

Morning workshops are 9am to 1pm and the first workshop is followed by screening of Resilience over a BYO lunch. Afternoon workshops are 12-4pm with Resilience screened at 11 am.

Contact is Jo Hiam

Learners will need to come to the second workshop ready to share stories of working with The Hand Model and Emotion Coaching. To support this please read chapter 3 'Building the staircase of the mind' in Dan Siegel's Whole Brain Child Workbook, take a look through The 3 Principles to Improve Outcomes for Children and Families or if you prefer watch Jack Shonkoff speaking  and familiarise yourself with our online resources including our elearning portal.
