Manage Strong Emotions

An interview with Dr. Theresa Bouley 

View a transcript of this video.

Dr. Theresa Bouley discusses how children's literature can be used to help children to express and manage their emotions. This video was created as part of the Guiding Young Children's Behavior series, an interactive training curriculum that provides current and future early childhood professionals with tools and strategies for guiding preschool children's behavior in positive ways. The curriculum was originally made possible through the generous support of the U.S. Department of Defense for Project Navigate, a project to support the professional development of early childhood professionals in U.S. Navy child care centers. This video focuses on using literature as a tool to help children better understand and express their feelings.
