Shaping Prosocial Behavior
Young people need social and emotional skills to succeed in school and in our communities. We shape students behavior to increase self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making. These skills are shown to reduce emotional distress, prevent conduct problems, and contribute to higher academic achievement.
