Helping our patients with emotional literacy
I often don’t frame my counseling sessions as counseling anymore.
I frame it as emotional literacy classes especially when working with kids and their families.
The principle is, we all need numeracy, literacy, financial literacy and emotional literacy to thrive in life right?
I suspect that in the distant future, emotional literacy will be “a thing”, and will be added into the curriculum similar to numeracy and literacy.
But until then, we will continue to scaffold for that gap.
