Maria commented on Heart Centered 21st Century Learning

As a psychologist and parent of a child who has experienced bullying, I have witnessed first hand the detrimental social and psychological effects that bullying has had on both the bully and the victim. Dr. Mason's Heart Centered approach stands apart from other anti-bullying campaigns and social-emotional approaches to learning through its focus on reflective discovery, self- and  other- awareness, strengths and capabilities, and the central role that each child plays in the larger community. I have witnessed the impact that this approach has had on my own child as he is developing a greater sense of himself as a confident, capable, child that is as unique as he is similar to his peers. The Heart Centered approach helps students see and experience the common bonds that each child shares with one another while celebrating the differences.
