How People Can help Me Calm Down Worksheet


Worksheet in which children can think about things other people can do for them to help them calm down when they are in a heightened emotional state and also the things other people might do that make them feel worse.


Why do you need this?

Encouraging children to reflect on effective coping strategies empowers them to regulate their emotions constructively. By identifying supportive actions from others, children learn to seek help and utilize resources to manage their feelings effectively.


The worksheet fosters social awareness and interpersonal skills by prompting children to consider how others' behaviours impact their emotional well-being. Recognising supportive actions versus unhelpful behaviours enhances empathy and communication skills in social interactions.


How and when might you use this?

This worksheet could be used in a variety of ways:

· During early morning to start the day by discussing strategies for managing emotions and supporting each other.

· As part of PSHE lessons focused on emotional regulation and social skills development.

· During conflict resolution to help students identify behaviours that contribute to emotional escalation and those that promote de-escalation and resolution.

· During counselling sessions to help students reflect on their emotional triggers and coping strategies.

· For behavioural intervention plans for students who struggle with emotional regulation. Use it as a tool for identifying triggers and proactive strategies to prevent escalation, as well as supportive actions from peers and adults.
