Feeling our Feelings | English Literacy Classes

We excitedly handed over our class this week to our sponsors, licensed Counseling Psychologist Amaechi Nduka-Agwu and Child and Youth Counselor Rehema Busch, for an Emotional Mindfulness Session. Children from disadvantaged backgrounds have fewer opportunities to explore, let alone regulate, their emotions. Understanding emotional expression, as skilfully directed by Amaechi and Rehema, provided them with the opportunity to better understand themselves, relate to others, and acquire coping skills that may potentially have lifelong benefits in their particularly difficult lives. Most of all, it told them that it is perfectly natural to feel and talk about their feelings.
