My son’s emotion


Dear AAC team, I’d be grateful for some feedback and clarity on these Models please!

UM
C- my son says crying « I’m so embarrassed » (after I talk to him about his behaviour)
T- I haven’t handled this well!
F- guilt
A- try to justify myself, apologise, try to make him feel better, blame myself, get cross with his sister who’s laughing at him, don’t process my F, blame her for her behaviour, ruminate, try to fix him
R- I don’t handle it well.

IM
C- same
T- He’s having an emotion
F- compassion
A- stay calm, help him, explain to sister, feel my F
R- I’m being compassionate to me and him
