Since 1975, we have developed evidence-based cognitive lifeskills courses. Now, we have infused our cognitive restructuring model into early intervention and prevention courses.

What People Say about ELS

The administration side of Lifeskills Link is incredibly user friendly and straightforward. For someone like myself who has multiple spinning plates at once, it's very helpful to be able to quickly sort and review the students' responses and issue course completion certificates.

The Positive Thinking Skills class has been great for the students of Dixie High School and I hope we continue to offer it in the future.

I was able to participate in the Positive Thinking Skills Course with my son. I found it to be very relative in today's society. I appreciate the message of people being responsible for their own actions regardless of their upbringing. I wish this program was available when I was a kid. I support this program for all schools.

Education Lifeskills has been a program I've been looking for to provide restorative outcomes to our students. Lifeskills courses, in conjunction with counseling services, have been a gamechanger for our administrators and counselors looking to keep students engaged in school. Our 3-month pilot has gone very well, and we look forward to embedding the program into our daily student supports (socially, emotionally, and behaviorally).

My experience: The curriculum was so helpful to my students, because Education Lifeskills gives them opportunities to be real in real situations. This has helped them be successful in applying the skills, and also figuring out what their peers are going through. I am thankful that I was able to use it.

We have implemented the Positive Thinking Skills course into our alternative high school, and the conversations we are having with our students about their own thinking errors and the choices they are making on a daily basis have been incredible! The students relate to the material in a very tangible way, and their takeaways have been profound. Additionally, we have used Education Lifeskills as an intervention during our discipline proceedings with students and have had great feedback from parents and students alike as we have provided an intervention instead of just suspending or using other forms of punitive discipline.
