Emotion Coaching Training for the Children and Young People’s workforce in Somerset


Somerset Public Health commissioned Bath Spa University and EHCAP (a Somerset based social enterprise) to provide Emotion Coaching Training to the children and young people’s workforce in Somerset. The training is based on Bath Spa’s Attachment Aware Schools Programme and utilises emotion coaching inspired by Professor John Gottman’s research in the USA.


Training was offered in each of the five districts and allowed participants to take on leadership roles within their own organisations. Working with both professionals and young people, the training increased understanding of emotional health and wellbeing and enabled a better appreciation of when and how to refer on for help.


More information about Somerset's Emotion Coaching programme can be found on the EHCAP website.
