Learning Strategies For Addressing Childhood Trauma: EI Curriculum Launched
With this curriculum launch, the company hopes to provide K-12 classrooms with a student-focused EI program that fosters hope as a means of buffering adversity from childhood trauma. This curriculum, called “My Best Me”, teaches students a three-step hope-building method of setting positive goals, creating actionable pathways to those goals, and cultivating the personal willpower they need to accomplish their goals.

Hope Rising designed its new EI curriculum to give students the tools they need to manage stress and negative emotions due to childhood adversity and trauma. In addition to the three-step goal achievement method, students learn to identify and appreciate their individual strengths, which promotes healthy self-esteem and a positive outlook.
In over 2,000 studies on illness, trauma, and resilience, hope has proven to be the most predictive indicator of well-being in a person’s life. Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are directly linked to a low level of hope, creating a lack of self-esteem, difficulty trusting and building healthy relationships, and a negative outlook for the future. Low levels of hope correlate with high levels of stress, anxiety, and depression in students, all of which inhibit their ability to learn and perform academically.
“My Best Me” uses interactive projects to teach students how to build skills that lead to higher levels of hope. Through a series of structured lessons, students reflect on their identity, personality, and role in relationships, building a stable sense of self. Students also learn how to maintain order in their mental, emotional, and physical health. Additionally, “My Best Me” teaches students techniques for having healthy interactions with classmates, teachers, family members, and strangers.
