Guidance for the evaluation of results

The objective observation of the behavior of students/participants in the process, with the application of before and after tests, can signal the gains of social emotional skills, as well as the reduction of problematic behaviors.
Early Childhood Education
Once upon a time... emotions
Social Emotional Learning should begin with the parents. Parents with social emotional education guide their children from an early age. Then, in early childhood education, the content is organized and systematized and the school establishes the paths for advancement in Elementary School and in High School. The teaching material presented for early childhood education is designed for 5 year olds and is composed of two volumes to guide the educators and two volumes to guide the family.
League for Peace
In a series, the teaching materials separately attend each age group, from 6 to 11 years old. Having specific material for each age group is a valuable differential from the psycho-pedagogical point of view, which contributes to the effectiveness of the intervention.
Young people and adults
The teaching materials are designed for the 15-30 age group, both inside and outside the context of formal education. They are intended for schools, families, social development organizations with a focus on the culture of peace and the reduction of violence, and corporate environments, for the empowerment of young people and adults. Self-esteem is the guiding principle that permeates all the content.
