  • Help educators manage the “classroom dance” that occurs between the educator and the students
  • Provide tools for educators to address and reduce anger, anxiety, and avoidance
  • Help school officials identify the differences in male and female emotional processing according to Dr. Payne's framework.
  • Provide the tools to motivate good behavior
