Circle of Emotions & Feelings Poster
When we use words to describe how we're feeling, both hemispheres of the brain come into play. Dr. Dan Siegel, a leading researcher in the field of Interpersonal Neurobiology, calls this "integration." He uses the phrase “name it to tame it” to describe how teaching children this skill helps calm down the emotional limbic brain, supporting neural connections to the underdeveloped executive brain—the area that supports problem-solving and managing feelings more mindfully.
The Circle of Emotions and Feelings poster is a visual tool that supports the older child with this brain integration process. Paired with a mindful-check practice (moving from autopilot to mindful awareness of one's inner world), use this tool to help build your child's emotional intelligence and emotional regulation skills.
