    Regulating aversive emotions is a very important develeopmental step. The concept opens ways for primary-school children to rise awareness for aversive emotions like anger and rage and gives opportunities to find individual ways to regulate these emotions in regard to the social surrounding. The exhibition „Expedition rage“ empowers children to become scouts for their own emotions and to contribute to wellbeing in their social group.
