Big Feelings Group

Upset, Frustration & Anger - Kids' Group

This group is for children aged 6-8 experiencing difficulty regulating negative emotions, like upset (crying, whining, tantruming), frustration or anger. In this group, kids will learn skills to improve their ability to manage their "Big" feelings and express them in positive ways. Molly, the group facilitator, has experience facilitating group therapy with children and teaching coping skills in a variety of fun ways, including books, worksheets, art projects, and therapeutic games. Parents will be invited in at the end of each session for a brief summary of group activities and discussion.

Lesson/discussion Topics:

  • Exploring BIG feelings, increasing emotion vocabulary, normalizing negative feelings
  • Differentiating thoughts, feelings and behavior; and understanding their connection
  • Learning calming coping skills to manage negative feelings and improve self control
  • Practicing ways to express negative feelings in positive ways
