Bringing Little Spirit ~ Feelings #6


Containment. It’s important to provide a safe, calm, supportive space and ear for feelings to be heard. Children and youth cope best when they know they can release their emotions and feel safe. They cope less effectively and at times act out if they are feeling the opposite and not emotionally secure with their parent or primary caregiver. Yes adults also have emotions but its not helpful for you/or the adult who is present to be emotionally uncontained. The child or youth shouldn’t have to be processing what to do with the adults emotions or reactions. Allow the space for their expression. Contained and heard.

Hold Space.
