The Full Value School: A Social-Emotional Learning Community is a book for educators, parents, clinicians, and consultants. It contains information on why the program is important, why it works and hundreds of fun, experiential activities to teach key concepts.

The Full Value School provides the tools for children, and all iterations of educator, to create a safe and affirming culture and climate, and to build resiliency and peace in their classrooms, homes, and community.  It empowers children to have an influential voice that is valued by their peers, employing a simple group processing framework to facilitate respectful dialogue, the appropriate sharing of feelings, and positive problem-solving.

These same tools can be used by parents, therapists, and consultants. They are easily transferable.

In our work with children and adults, we find a deep yearning for living a Full Value life with norms that are developed together, rather than imposed. These norms must be universal, teachable, comprehensive, easy to understand, sustainable and inspirational. To create a positive social-emotional community, children must be full participants, not passive observers.

Written Richard Maizell, Jim Schoel & John Grund in 2020 (316 pages.)
