Emotional Regulation

Emotional Regulation


Emotional Regulation is the skill to recognise emotions within oneself and others, and also control their behaviours when they are in different emotional states. Emotional regulation is an essential skill to develop social skills. As a child develops, they learn emotional regulation skills from adults around them. They often need to be soothed by the adults and slowly can learn to self-soothe. As they grow older they learn to control and regulate their emotions.

Occupational Therapists work with children to identify different emotions, in both themselves and to recognise other people’s emotions. We also work to develop strategies to help regulate the child’s emotions when they become upset or angry.

If your think your child has difficulty with the above areas, contact us below using the contact form.
