Ramona Löber, a B.A.S.E.® group leader:

“They talk about their feelings and say things like, ‘I’m angry’ or they say ‘I’m doing OK today, things are pretty good.’

“Because we talk a lot about feelings, because we pay attention to feelings, we look at them carefully, and the children imitate that. They can respond to their feelings, show their feelings, and articulate their own feelings. By showing their feelings, how things are going for them, it has also gotten easier for us to work here because we are better able to respond to the children.”
