20170919 120446 e1511647494661From our bedrock belief that “encouraged people do not misbehave” we make encouragement our primary objective. We achieve this through several age-appropriate versions of our course Being 101, which teaches social awareness and problem solving skills. Students learn to analyze stressful situations and implement plans for peaceful solutions. In this course we’ve synthesized content from several significant emotional literacy programs and strengthened them with highly effective techniques we’ve developed at New Leaf over the last 20 years.
