LifeFacts: Managing Emotions

This program teaches your students helpful techniques in effectively managing the four basic emotions: anger, sadness, fear, and joy. Your students will learn the four-step C.A.L.M. System for identifying and reacting to “feelings” to optimize personal satisfaction, promote positive relationships, and improve self-esteem. The C.A.L.M approach is especially suitable for use with persons with learning and developmental disabilities as it stresses active management rather than analysis of emotions. Common, real-life situations that typically evoke specific emotions are illustrated, as well as, an effective C.A.L.M. response to them.

With this program you’ll help students:
  1. Learn to calm themselves before deciding to act on their feelings.
  2. Learn that having feelings does not mean they have to be acted out.
  3. Express anger without blowing-up or resorting to violence.
  4. Cope with sadness and compensate for loss.
  5. Handle fear by taking action instead of withdrawing.
  6. Understand what makes people happy, including the “Seven Steps To Happiness.”

My students were glued to the screen. Love Stanfield’s humor. This is the way to teach social skills.

Using Humor to Teach Social Skills

Humor = Retention

We believe you learn best when you laugh. By making the classroom experience more comfortable and enjoyable, humor can make teaching and learning more effective, especially for the K12 segment. At Stanfield, we use humor as an integral part of our curricula.

If you as a speaker don’t help your audience to remember your lessons, then you’re wasting everyone’s time. Humor… can help accomplish that needed retention…
