Ivy Child International
Our mission is helping each child achieve their best by recognizing and enhancing their unique strengths and abilities while encouraging and enabling families to participate in the growth of their child. We strive to be a leading resource for caregivers, educators, and community organizations to receive guidance and instruction on creating a healthy child-centered environment.
Cross-Cultural Positive Psychology
Cross-cultural positive psychology investigates how cultural factors influence positive behavior. While we all experience happiness, how this emotion is expressed varies from one culture to the next. This field of psychology looks at both universal behaviors and unique behaviors to identify the ways that culture impacts familial, academic, social, professional, and other aspects of life.
The Ivy Child Approach
Through careful examination of the whole child, personal strengths and assets are identified to build an individualized Positive Psychological Plan (PPP). The Plan, which uses a holistic approach, highlights goals to be integrated into the child’s daily routine as a set of practical exercises and is designed to stimulate his/her mind, body, and spirit.
