Strategies and Resources to Help Children Identify and Process Emotions
Grades: K - 12

On this episode of the Classroom Matters podcast, host Kristy Houle talks with Jessica Sinarski, licensed professional counselor of mental health, educator, and speaker about helping children identify their emotions and process them in a healthy way.  Jessica has extensive post-graduate training and 15+ years as a clinician and educator which has led her to create the resource and training platform BraveBrains. She partners with school districts and child welfare agencies around the world to unlock resilience in children and adults alike. And she has just published her newest children’s book, Riley the Brave’s Big Feelings Activity Book: A Trauma-Informed Guide for Counselors, Educators, and Parents, which is full of engaging content and trauma-sensitive strategies to help children understand the brain science behind big feelings and how to deal with them.
