Increasing the mental and emotional intelligence of students (elementary school – college) at home and in the classroom
For students who need a boost in their emotional intelligence, HeartMath® training using a visual language called HeartSmarts has been proven to increase educational knowledge, improve reading and math skills, and have smoother relationships in the class room. These skills become a foundation in their lives. Please watch this 10-minute video from changingbrains.org to learn more about how a calm nurturing environment is essential to learning.
Core-Herence coaching is available for
- individual students including parental instruction
- high school and college students to reduce test anxiety
- small student groups as after-school enrichment (East San Francisco Bay Region only)
- teachers to work the HeartMath techniques into their classrooms (via webcam, phone or in-person San Francisco Bay Region only)
Programs that use HeartMath techniques and the emWave® hardware have been introduced at the elementary, middle school, high school, college and graduate levels across the US.* These programs have been demonstrated to improved emotional well-being, classroom, behaviors, and academic performance.**
The HeartMath techniques along with the biofeedback using the emWave Desktop are the ideal way to introduce emotional learning at school and at home.
For pre-school and grade school children, Core-Herence coaching uses a program called HeartSmarts that teaches the HeartMath techniques through visual cues. This program transforms the internal dialog of “This is too hard. I don’t get it.” to “It’s OK to make mistakes, that’s how I learn.”
For high schools, college and graduate students, we use a HeartMath program called TestEdge that is designed to reduce test anxiety and improve test performance.
Along with the HeartMath techniques, the students learn how to use the award-winning emWave PSR® or emWave Desktop to feedback their physiology reflecting their state of mind which quickly confirms and reinforces their progress.
