Program Description

Event Details

Local author Marlene Davis presents her book Emoticons at School for ages 8-11. This story reflects the reality children and youth face at school. One morning, Celeste was unexpectedly confronted with a conflict situation at school. It made her feel very upset and afraid. That same day her teacher presented a new practical and helpful technique called, “The 5 Senses for Emotional Resilience.” Using this technique, Celeste experienced a positive and creative way to identify feelings that were affecting her that morning at school. Instead of pushing, rejecting, and avoiding her emotions, she embraced them and followed the steps of “The 5 Senses for Emotional Resilience.” By applying this technique, Celeste felt safe and turned her fears into courage, ready to begin her school day with great confidence.
