Emotional Trigger Bundle (Bounce)



Welcome to the Emotional Activation/Trigger Resource Pack

The Emotional Activation Scale™ has been created – to give the child visual aids in understanding that emotions have lots of energy. And sometimes – when
our body has been programmed to link high energy to anxiety. This is when we might misinterpret exciting times in our life – with worry and stress.

Then, as we begin to inaccurately programme these experiences into subconscious mind. All our future actions, thoughts and feelings become based on this
programme. We therefore, live in a loop of our past negative programming – without questioning if it’s true or not! But not anymore! With the Emotional
Activation Scale™ comes a new awareness and perspective.  There are different versions – so that they can be used with different ages.

How to use the Pack:

  • Print off resources (laminate mats relevant to that child)
  • Complete the activities:
    • Activity 1: Introducing the Scale
    • Activity 2: Identifying Triggers

Activities come with everything you need (and more) – with a clear outline of the activity, the objective and resources to achieve it.


Once you have a clear idea of why a child is feeling as they are – you have the power to change their environment, to enable them to move down to the scale into a safe, healing space – where everything is possible!
