Cross-cultural positive psychology investigates how cultural factors influence positive behavior. It looks at both universal behaviors and unique behaviors to identify the ways that culture impacts familial, academic, social, professional, and other aspects of life.

Through our careful examination of the whole child, personal strengths and assets are identified to build an individualized Positive Psychological Plan (PPP) and customized assessment. The plan, which uses a holistic, non-pharmaceutical approach, highlights goals to be integrated into the child’s daily routine as a set of practical exercises designed to stimulate his/her mind, body, and spirit.

Helping each child achieve their best!
