Emotional Intelligence training, the skills and self-awareness in relation to empathy, is not provided in modern day educational programming. Given how prime empathetic understanding is, individuals are entering the real world unprepared for reality.
Our purpose is to provide students with essential emotional literacy skills so they can live and lead a meaningful and balanced life. The Behavior Hub provides a comprehensive emotional intelligence education to a generation that is not introduced to social-emotional skills. Or, the education they do receive doesn't provide them with the tools necessary to live a mentally and emotionally well-balanced life.
Students will learn through problem solving and self regulatory strategies. TBH will disrupt the current system of social-emotional education by demonstrated demand for the empowerment of youth and adults with the skill-set necessary to thrive mentally and emotionally.
Our secret ingredient is our categorization system coupled with the Suzuki Methodology of teaching. We teach children how to manage their strong emotions through our categorization system, how to address these strong emotions through grounding strategies, eat foods that develop the brain, and use exercise to calm the nervous system while simultaneously teaching adults how to respond to these emotions, get kids to eat real food, and promote healthy exercise.
"The Behavior Hub’s (TBH) contribution to M's social, emotional, and educational growth is invaluable. TBH succeeded where other mental health professionals failed. With TBH’s help, M is showing amazing improvement. M's aggressive acts have decreased in frequency and severity and her interactions with peers are predominantly positive. Her self-esteem and self-image have improved and she can now verbalize her emotional state and the cause of her feelings.”
TBH’s desired outcomes:
Objective 1: By December 31, 2019, TBH will reach 1,200 adults in order to enhance awareness of adults on importance of understanding and applying empathetic communication and self-regulation skills to their relationships with children.
Objective 2: Ninety percent of children that TBH serves displaying at least 5 emotional regulation skills (regulation skills include but are not limited to: appropriate responses to denials, transitioning between activities, respecting physical space boundaries, independent problem solving, and using self-regulation techniques) within eight weeks of service start date.
