Kids tend to see worrisome events as either all or nothing. Learning that some things bother or worry us a little, a little bit more, medium amounts or a lot is a life skill. This is an important part of emotional regulation and being able to keep your anxiety in check. This product introduces the idea that EVERYONE has things that cause them anxiety. A check list is given for both typical anxiety producing events and then typical body cues as a response from those. Being able to learn WHAT causes anxiety and WHEN you are experiencing it, are the first steps in emotional regulation. An exercise is then used for accessing basic emotional literacy (identifying emotions to situations) After this exercise, a 5 point scale is used for your student to rate worrisome or anxiety provoking events. Be sure to use in all cases, not just extreme cases, so your student can begin to see patterns and understand ranges of emotions. You may have to really guide your student at first, as they may want to rate everything all 1’s or all 5’s. Use body cues and facial expressions as a guide. Great for students on the autism spectrum.
