Pearls of Wisdom: Handling Overwhelming Emotions

For over 30 years, international school leaders, teachers, and counselors have come together for PTC professional learning experiences.  Each day of every program begins with a 'pearl of wisdom', a 'nugget of knowledge', or a 'gem of inspiration' from one of the participants. We are delighted to offer our readers around the world these powerful stories, insights, and strategies, all dedicated to our shared mission of ever more and better learning for our children. 

In this pearl, Sajitha Chacko, a practicing international school counselor offers a helpful, practical strategy for helping students struggling with difficult emotions.

“Any feeling that you really want to manage - practice A.C.E. Try it, and see, it will work wonders for you and me.”


Sajitha Chacko is a Counselor at UIM, India
