Inside Out Explorers: Emotion Regulation Group
Each session of Inside Out Explorers will focus on a specific emotion, using characters from the movie Inside Out to illustrate and understand different feelings. Through age-appropriate activities, discussions, and play, children will learn to identify, express, and regulate emotions constructively. The group will meet once a week for a duration of 10 weeks, and each session will last 45 minutes.
The Inside Out movie can be viewed on YouTube or Disney+ prior to the start of the group or you can check your local library to see if they have the movie available for rent. It is not a requirement to have seen the movie before the start of the group but is highly encouraged!
