“Emotional self-control-- delaying gratification and stifling impulsiveness- underlies accomplishment of every sort”
CORE stands for Cognitive Rational Emotive Education. Today’s world is changing fast, it is unpredictable and the future is even more challenging. Many children, adolescents and young adults who are not able to achieve their goals as per their potential, are stressed or too complacent. Anxiety, depression, aggression, irresponsible behaviour, impulsivity and mobile usage are growing. More serious problems like suicide, addictions and assault are alarmingly on the rise. The World Health Organisation has already predicted that Suicide will overtake Cancer in the number of deaths per year by 2020.
Interestingly these problems can be largely prevented by a structured, researched program that starts right in the formative years of children, and its never too late to start. Many institutions are actively taking up life skills programs but CORE is more structured, is beyond a simple life-skills training, based on researched therapies like CBT and REBT, delivered by trained and supervised professionals, and is already running successfully in three schools at Mumbai.
The program is firmly anchored on evidence based therapies viz. Cognitive Behavior therapy and Rational Emotive Behavior therapy, the leading psychotherapies in the world.
