This project explored the effect of the Don’t Let Emotions Run Your Life for Kids workbook and the implementation of a daily feelings check-in on a sixth grader’s problem behaviors. These behaviors included being unable to regulate her emotions, using aggressive language in the classroom, and struggling with peer relationships and group work. The student met with a school psychology practicum student and the school psychologist once a week for a lesson using the Don’t Let Emotions Run Your Life for Kids workbook. The student met with the school counselor daily for a feelings check-in to practice identifying emotions. Results showed the implementation of supports to be helpful for the student.
