Our Philosophy

We’re dedicated to creating a big hearted & bully free world where…

People use effective communication tools to eliminate fighting, misunderstanding & bullying.

People know & recognize each other’s worth, eliminating the kind of teasing that creates low self-esteem and low academic performance.

How do we do this? By…

  • Teaching effective communication tools – I Message, Clean-up, Stop & Breathe and The Balloon, our kid-tested metaphor for emotional self-regulation.
  • Incorporating character building stories and experiences into our workshops.
  • Addressing the real issues students are facing, strategizing and planning for future solutions.
  • Optimizing learning environments for social emotional learning.
  • Supporting the entire school community.

“At Soul Shoppe, we focus on bullying as a behavior instead of using the term “bully” to describe a person. We believe, and research shows, that while the causes of bullying are varied, the solutions always include building resilience, compassion, empathy, and problem solving skills. Kids in emotionally safe and respectful environments perform better socially, academically and emotionally in their lives and experience less bullying overall.”

OUR MISSION IS TO KEEP SCHOOLS SAFE & BULLY FREE
