Chattanooga Life Coach To Give Training Sessions At National Conference

Monday, February 12, 2018

Danielle Alvarez Greer, Chattanooga’s "Happy Family Coach" and creator of the Happy Kid Toolkit, has been invited to deliver two workshops for family counselors from across the country at this year’s national conference for the National Association For Relationship And Marriage Education.  The conference will take place July 15-20 in Orlando. 

At the conference Ms. Greer will deliver a two-day training for counselors on how to use her Happy Kid Toolkit to help people become more responsible spouses.  The second workshop is a 90-minute class that will teach counselors on how to use the Happy Kid Toolkit to help people become better parents. 

“As the world becomes more complicated the need for a more flexible and introspective approach to emotional well-being becomes more critical,” said Ms. Greer.  “The most effective way for both adults and children to achieve emotional well-being is by understanding the reality of their situations, the root causes of their negative emotions, and the necessary emotional journey each individual needs to take to more positive emotions.” 

The Happy Kid Toolkit is an interactive kit that features two sets of “Reality Triangles.”  One triangle features three possible negative emotions – blaming bully, helpless baby, and bossy helper – help people understand what they experience during a negative episode.   The second triangle features three possible positive emotions (respectful leader, happy kid, and caring friend) people go through when they are helping to resolve the issue. 

The point of these reality triangles is to stress reality and show the individual which emotion they are experiencing.  Once the individual understands the reality of the situation and the corresponding emotion the tool kit will then offer advice and strategies on how to transform from a negative to a positive emotion using the triangles – ultimately learning how to get along.
