At the Emotion Hygiene Alliance, we created and teach a unique framework for trauma-informed social, mental, and physical well-being. A framework which forges eleven distinct areas of science and philosophy into a powerful set of tools and curricula. Know the 11
The Emotion Hygiene Alliance is proud to serve and train schools, leaders, caregivers, and individuals. Every EHA-trained person makes a difference in their own and the people around them’s health and well-being.
Kids: Education and Childcare
The Emotion Hygiene Alliance offers an easy-to-implement, trauma-informed curriculum to help schools thrive and be prosocial. Our teacher trainings empowers schools to support all students in a trauma-sensitive way.
Our first-of-its-kind movement program fosters physical, social, and emotional agency — helping kids have power over how they feel and function. We also offer this curriculum in multiple forms: Meditation, Art, Drama, Acupoint Tapping. Each of our programs support all the students participating, thereby eliminating the need to identify, single out, and potentially stigmatize those “at-risk”. And each program encapsulates all of the CASEL competencies for SEL:
Our work is rooted in eleven foundational areas of research and philosophy, including Polyvagal theory, Attachment Theory, ACEs science, and Broaden and Build Theory. This research has massive implications in the fields of education, medicine, psychology, and public health; and gives us a unique and comprehensive picture of how well-being functions within children and within wider systems of families and communities. Our childcare provider trainings help caregivers provide a trauma-informed learning environment for the development of mental + physical + social health.
Adults: Fitness, Nutrition, Justice
Eleven paradigm-shattering areas of research and philosophy are reshaping the fields of public health, medicine, psychology, education, and social and criminal justice. Know the 11
When we look through the combined lenses of this research, we can see a clear picture of how well-being works for kids, adults, organizations, and communities. Surprisingly, well-being is not natural. It takes repeated practice, reliable resources, and continuing support. By translating these 11 areas into body-based, social-emotional programs and tools for adults and organizations, the EHA hopes to help bridge the “17-year science-to-practice gap”.

How rarely do you leave the house without brushing your teeth? How often do you leave the house in a bad mood?
While bad breath can repel others, an antisocial mood may be even more offensive. Feeling anxious, depressed, or triggered impairs us significantly; we're more likely to see others as irritating or threatening, complete tasks at a slower pace, and perform poorly.
Feeling good makes us good people and productive citizens. Social and emotional hygiene needs to become a key element of our daily routines. Hygiene doesn't need to be time-consuming or difficult, just effective in the moments we need it most.
Tools for Emotion Hygiene
We offer sensory-based, somatic tools as well as educational content.
