An interview with Dr Justin Coulson about Little People and Big Feelings We are privileged to have Justin giving his time for us for this incredible cot effective event. After a successful radio career Justin returned to school in his late 20’s where he earned his psychology degree from the University of Queensland and his PhD in psychology from the University of Wollongong.
Since then he has written multiple peer-reviewed journal articles and scholarly book chapters, as well as several books and ebooks about parenting, including the 21 Days to a Happier Family (Harper Collins, 2016) and 9 Ways to a Resilient Child (Harper Collins, 2017).
Justin is also a highly sought-after international speaker delivering keynote speeches and workshops to boost wellbeing and improve relationships for parents, teachers, students and employees and students.
In addition, Justin is consistently sought after by the media for his expertise. He writes a weekly advice column for Sydney’s Daily Telegraph, appears regularly on The Project, the TODAY Show, Studio 10, Mornings and several radio stations around the nation. He is also the parenting expert at kidspot.com.au, Australia’s number one parenting website.
What are we supposed to do when our child is having a tantrum? Losing the plot? Going off their rocker?
Most of our responses – no matter how well-intended – can make things worse. We tell them to stop it, calm down, cut it out… and they don’t! They get worse! We send them to their room, take the iPad… it all backfires. Dealing with little people’s big emotions (and challenging behaviours) in the middle of an outburst is tough!
The tricky thing is that much of our children’s challenging behaviour (and our feeling that they are not resilient) has less to do with the behaviour we’re seeing, and more to do with the big emotions they’re feeling that we’re not quite sure what to do with.
Little People, Big Feelings is Dr Justin Coulson’s powerful guide to teaching children to understand and regulate their emotional world. Once they develop competence with this critical life skill, emotionally intelligent children will feel more confident, perform better at school, have healthier relationships with others, and even be physically healthier. This presentation equips parents with a five-step “emotion coaching” process that brings together the very best in emotional intelligence research from Dr John Gottman, the Yale Centre for Emotional Intelligence, and others to build children’s resilience, increase wellbeing for the whole family, and develop healthier humans.
