There Are No Bad Feelings:Using the Emotions & Values Audit with Students

For ADVISORS, deans, counselors, psychologists, social workers, learning specialists, and student life program administrators

Emotions tell us that something important is at stake. In this session, we’ll learn a protocol that helps students notice their own emotions, name the values those emotions are connected to, and choose actions in accordance with those values. We’ll explore how to use the protocol in academic classes, advisory groups, parent conferences, and disciplinary incidents, so that students are empowered to connect their actions to their values in and out of the classroom. To ensure that this activity is relevant during and beyond the pandemic, we’ll see how to use it in online and face-to-face learning environment.
