Children who learn valuable social and emotional skills from an early age are better equipped to succeed in school and in life.


Without a doubt, math, science, language, and technology skills are a vital part of today’s learning curriculum. However, the fastest growing industries and the highest paying jobs of the future will demand well-developed social and emotional skills, also known as “soft skills.”

Emotional Competency is Vital to Success

In my work with global organizations, I discovered that the top performing men and women have one thing in common. They are exceptionally skilled at working with others and harnessing the power of people.

The ability to demonstrate empathy and cooperation on the job is becoming a key differentiator among job candidates in today’s workforce. Analysts predict this trend is here to stay.


Learning how to effectively manage emotions and master the social environment gives kids an advantage in school and life.


How Storycatching® Can Help

Just as a dreamcatcher wards off negative dreams, the Storycatching® method empowers children “catch” negative patterns before they turn into poor social and emotional habits. Children learn to understand and moderate their emotions, use pro-social behaviors, make healthy behavior choices, and manage peer relationships in positive ways. They learn how to master stress and take steps to improve their personal happiness and well-being.

The Storycatching® method and programs equip K-6 children with a positive psychological foundation for life.

Featuring creative story building activities, breathing exercises, and visualization, the Storycatching® method teaches children skills for positive emotional and psychological functioning. They learn emotional management, empathy, confidence, balance, resilience, and inner strength–vital skills for success in learning and life.
