Curriculum of Specialist Subjects

SEDS is grounded in the rigor of emotional science, distilled into modules and delivered through a facilitated blended learning and development process. There are THREE specialist subjects:

Emotions: the science behind emotions, first how the brain and emotions are linked, then breaking down the definitions and identification of emotions. Lastly spotting universal emotions in others and correctly identifying the types of emotions experiences being witnessed;

Emotional Needs: the science behind the powerful area of human needs, firstly what the universal needs are and how they drive powerful emotions and thinking, then the process of mapping and analysing prevailing positive/negative emotional experiences;

Social Emotional Skills: the science behind emotional intelligence, firstly the construct of emotional competencies which break-down into building blocks to clusters into powerful social emotional skills, which then can be developed to forge a measurable emotional resilience.

And There’s More!
