Our program emerged 20+ years ago in response to call for guidance in supporting children's cooperation
Why Guiding Cooperation?
After years of pandemic life and related pandemic trauma, children, families and professional are experiencing stress. Guiding Cooperation relies on research from social emotional learning, educational neuroscience and mental health to support parents and professionals with trauma informed, brain based tools and frameworks to guide cooperation.

I have seen really big changes in my students and classroom when I use the Guiding Cooperation approach. I have enjoyed the content and the constant reminder of the basics of what our students and staff and teachers are dealing with. Having a safe forum to focus on the emotional struggles has been great. Helping the relationships and emotional well-being changes the energy and learning in the room.

Doing Guiding Cooperation as a team so we all learn together and focus on using these same principles is really helpful. I really like the emphasis on the positivity and describing behaviors and efforts in a positive way and altering our language can really make a big difference with our students.
