The Research shows that labeling feelings - and no feelings are "wrong" - is the first step to understanding and communicating them properly. Children and adults participate in the world more effectively with a thorough understanding of what they are feeling. Feelings that are suppressed or exaggerated may result in ineffectual actions that are less than helpful or even compulsive behaviors.
The StoryBook Project uses colorful and engaging art to illustrate these concepts.
