Kimochis are, on the surface, a family of cuddly critters and a big bowl of emotions. Underneath, is a proven system for helping kids grow and transform by dealing skillfully with their feelings. Participants will learn the 5 Keys to Communication, new words to express feelings, and new strategies to deal with feelings.

This mini-course is perfect for teachers and SLPs, is easy to implement, offers a starter kit to get you going implementing Kimochis, and two follow up coaching sessions for questions.
