Emotional Intelligence

Forest School Practitioners work from a person-centred perspective, which explores how we can help participants to work with their feelings and improve their emotional intelligence.

Long programmes, small groups size and the resources of a woodland environment allow plenty of time, space and peace for Leaders to work one to one with participants on individual targets. Self-motivation and Regulation are fostered. Students are encouraged to recognise their emotions and to use the woodland resources to help develop strategies to manage them.

”It is more important to pave the way for a child to want to know than to put him on a diet of facts he is not ready to assimilate.”

Rachel Carson

FSW supports FS Practitioners by offering accredited practical CPD training on the use of the woodland resource in order to facilitate the development of Emotional Intelligence amongst their FS students.
