Facilitating Emotional Self-Regulation in Preschool Children: Efficacy of the Early HeartSmarts Program in Promoting Social, Emotional, and Cognitive Development

An e-book by Raymond Trevor Bradley, Ph.D., Mike Atkinson, Dana Tomasino, Robert A. Rees, Ph.D.

Giving Young Children a Great Start

Children as young as age 3 learned, practiced and retained socio-emotional skills taught in a HeartMath Early HeartSmarts® (EHS) pilot program in 19 preschools within the Salt Lake City School District. This comprehensive e-book details that highly successful pilot and study and the compelling evidence that EHS for ages 3-6 enhanced the children's growth in four key development areas. The authors lay out the step-by-step methodology and researchers' findings and conclusions. It includes discussions on the scientific basis of EHS; emotional regulation in early childhood; the heart's role in emotional experience; and the benefits of psychophysiological coherence and positive emotions.
