Participants can use a stoplight as a visual representation for their emotions and direct themselves toward a calmer attitude.
1. Prepare a visual of a stoplight with the colors green, yellow, and red.
2. Ask participants to reflect on their feelings and identify where they see themselves on the stoplight: green - calm, yellow - frustrated, and red - angry.
3. Ask them to recognize and briefly describe their color. Do they feel like they are moving up or down to a different color?
4. Ask them to consider what can they do to get to green?
5. This is meant to help participants express their feelings and come up with solutions to reach a calm condition.
1. Reflect on your feelings and identify where you see yourself on the stoplight: green - calm, yellow - frustrated, and red - angry.
2. Pause to recognize and briefly describe your color. Do you feel like you are moving up or down to a different color?
