Social and Emotional Health

The physical and social-emotional health of everyone across the school community is critical to support and evaluate.  

 

Prosocial incorporates contextual behavioral science (CBS) which provides evidence-informed practices for all ages and all levels of need. The following resources are easy to learn and applicable for children, teens, parents, teachers and school leaders.

Adaptive Capacity

Nobody, no matter their educational expertise, has the experience to ensure a fail-safe plan for the 2020-21 school year. 

As school improvement specialist David Sherer has argued, it is not about choosing "the right model", it is about ensuring your school has the right systems in place to improve and adapt.

Networked Improvement Communities

The NIC model for school improvement builds on the latest insights for the spread of evidence-informed social innovation. This approach supports leadership from every chair to:


1. Clarify individual and group improvement aims; 
2. Increase the capacity to ideate, share, and evolve solutions to complex improvement barriers;

3. Help groups stay focused on coordination around targeted goals, with an emphasis on cooperation within and between schools.

Teaching Materials, Ages 4-17

The science behind Prosocial offers 21st century learning content in all core subject areas, as well as open science methods for students to investigate and improve their communities.

Youth Corps Co-Design

We are seeking to empower youth as ambassadors for the principles and challenges of behavioral flexibility, starting with real-world projects that matter to them, their schools and/or communities. 

 

What is a co-design? Confident, yet humble, we want to design the Corps from square one with youth voice and youth agency. Then we want to nurture a perpetual, peer to peer, Prosocial Youth Corps movement.

DEAL Portraits

The highest level intervention is to model the system

For students, teachers, and school leaders looking for community based science at the cutting edge of evolutionary change, we offer custom support to launch the Doughnut Economic Action Lab (DEAL) Portrait tool.
