Research has documented that when children’s basic needs are met, there is little need to act out for attention, power, revenge or frustration.
By creating an environment that meets these social and emotional needs we can reduce the incidence of discipline problems, truancy, bullying, teenage pregnancies, school dropouts, drug and alcohol abuse, stress and depression and increase the number of students achieving success.
The BASE comprehensive model is designed to meet children’s basic social and emotional needs by supporting the five elements that are essential for a healthy personal development and strenghtening self-awareness, interpersonal skills, social inclusion and motivation for lifelong learning.
This way we aim to contribute to better motivation, increased personal and social responsibility, sense of purpose and academic success among youth, followed by their interest in lifelong learning and active participation in democratic processes.
By supporting their inner strengths we can help children manage more effectively the challenges that they face in school and the society, develop their inner potential and become more successful and productive as adults.
