HOW we serve

At the Emotion Hygiene Alliance, we created and teach a unique framework for trauma-informed, social, emotional, and physical well-being. A framework which forges five distinct areas of science and philosophy into a powerful set of tools and curricula. (Know the 5)


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. 


Five paradigm-shattering areas of research and philosophy are reshaping the fields of education, medicine, psychology, and public health. (Know the 5) 


When we look through the combined lenses of this research, we can see a clear picture of how well-being works for individuals, families, and communities. Surprisingly, well-being is not natural. It takes repeated practice, reliable resources, and continuing support. By translating these 5 areas—via body-based, social emotional programs and tools—into systems such as schools and organizations, the EHA hopes to help bridge the “17-year science-to-practice gap”. 


We predict the easy-to-implement, trauma-informed training and tools will buffer and boost participants and their patients, leading to:

  • A reduction in stress
  • A reduction in painkiller dependency
  • A reduction in antipsychotic and SSRI dependency in both patients and practitioners
  • A reduction in child, teen, and adult suicidality
  • Improved workplace well-being and engagement

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 work is rooted in four foundational areas of research: 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 complete picture of how well-being functions inside individuals, and also within wider systems of families and communities.


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 curricula in multiple forms: Meditation, EFT/Tapping, and coming soon: Art. 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:

  • Self-awareness
  • Self-management
  • Social awareness
  • Relationship skills
  • Responsible decision-making

"I've taken so many trainings and everyone talks about how we should practice self-love, self-acceptance, and all those things that help us feel good, but you actually taught us how to do it... and how to help other people do it as well." — 2020 SEF Trainee

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.
