Do you want to learn from the world’s leader in emotional intelligence and developers of the original Self-Science SEL curriculum?

 
 

SEL is needed today more than ever.

There is overwhelming evidence that our children are facing major social, emotional and mental health obstacles to succeeding at school. 

The only real solution is a comprehensive SEL program, which hundreds of academic studies have linked to improved learning outcomes and better school climate. A meta-analysis of 213 rigorous studies of SEL in schools linked quality SEL instruction to higher academic performance, fewer disruptive behaviors such as aggression, delinquent acts, improved attitudes and behaviors and reduced reports of depression, stress, and anxiety from students and their counselors.

For over 20 years, Six Seconds has been training and supporting people to use emotions as resources – and our history with social emotional learning goes even deeper than that: Six Seconds’ Self-Science curriculum was first published in 1978; in 1992, Daniel Goleman observed the program and dedicated a chapter of his 1995 bestselling book, Emotional Intelligence, to how EQ can work in education.

Six Seconds offers innovative tools and life changing training for educators to create evidence-based social emotional learning (SEL) solutions that work everywhere in the world. You will take away an in-depth understanding of emotional intelligence and practical tools and strategies to implement immediately in your school or classroom. 

We can’t wait to get you started teaching with EQ!
