Research finds that mindfulness, or the practice of focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, decreases stress and anxiety while increasing attention and emotional regulation. When cultivated at a young age, mindfulness equips children with the ability to observe upsetting thoughts and emotions without immediately reacting. It is the science of empathy and coping skills, and it is a hallmark of Self Development Academy (SDA).

Our mindfulness program teaches students how to handle daily challenges without being emotionally reactive. They learn how to self-regulate during extreme emotional states by learning how to recognize physiological responses to stress, anxiety, and other negative prompting events at school, at home, and more importantly, in life. Additionally, our program focuses on tools that encourage empathy and perspective taking.

SDA helps students develop mindfulness skills that allow them to be more present and less anxious, more aware and less reactive, more focused and less distracted.

Social and Emotional Learning Skills 

Self Development Academies Phoenix, Mesa, East Mesa, and Glendale focus on helping students develop social-emotional skills that will prepare them for the rigors of high school, college, careers, and life in general. Our comprehensive and coordinated approach to social and emotional learning (SEL) includes:

SDA’s mindfulness and SEL programs are a cornerstone of our mission to empower students to take ownership of their learning and be able to contribute positively to society. Our vision is to nurture capable, confident, and emotionally mature students who perceive problems as opportunities. Together, mindfulness and SEL helps our students remain steadfast in pursuit of their goals.
