Emotional Intelligence, also known as Social and Emotional Learning helps individuals develop the problem solving skills they need to be successful in school, at home, and at work. Understanding Emotional Intelligence gives kids, teens, and adults the confidence they need to recognize their emotions, choose their reactions, and give back to their communities.
Emotions are an integral part of the human experience. We feel wonder, joy, passion, and purpose; we also feel fear, disgust, anger, and frustration. The way we react to our feelings can help us create a more peaceful and prosperous world, or can move us to destroy each other and the world we share.
Casa Uses Social and Emotional Learning to Inspire Greatness
With over 38 years’ experience in the community, Casa knows the power of Emotional Intelligence and considers it the key to creating significant and sustainable social and cultural change.
Casa’s core mission is to provide evidence-based education that teaches children, teens, and adults how to build social and emotional skills and sustain healthy relationships at home, at school, at work, and within the community, ultimately leading to a reduction in abuse, bullying, meanness, and violence.
Training and education is absolutely vital to the prevention of many social problems. By integrating Emotional Intelligence (EQ) into schools, we help students develop the relationship and problem solving skills they need to be successful in school, at home, and eventually in the workplace. Students learn self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making through the use of evidence-based programs that work.
The Power of YOU , is an amazingly effective bullying prevention program. The success of the program hinges on the social and emotional skills that students learn, and on the relationships that are built between students and teachers, older students and younger students, staff members, schools and parents, parents and children, and schools and community partners.
Since its inception in 1973, Casa provided advocacy services to victims of sexual abuse and sexual assault. Casa now focuses entirely on prevention education, including No More Secrets: Kids Talk, a sexual abuse awareness/prevention for children ages 4-12, and POWER, a teen dating violence and date rape prevention for adolescents ages 13-18.
