Course Description

This course will present writing techniques and self-talk language that goes beyond the superficial educational phrases or cliché's used in schools. Instead of "self-esteemology", it presents the concept of right thinking and the truth about who we really are. Teachers will learn to write and use positive affirmations that are meaningful as well effective in shaping human behavior. They will also be exposed to new ways of thinking regarding the miss-programming of our minds and how the brain works. Educators will apply the concepts into schools settings by developing writings, lessons and classroom activities.
