OBJECTIVE of the method, RULER
Through this method, Logos School aims to provide our students with Emotional Intelligence Strategies and Skills to help them deal with everyday situations that occur within the home and school environments.
The Ruler program helps our students to become more aware of their emotions and the influence that these have on their day-to-day basis. They learn how to act naturally and adequately when facing emotionally intense situations. It helps them to analyze and resolve better any possible conflicts, maintain healthier relationships and sustain a greater physical and mental well-being, key aspects for optimal development.
