1. Skills for Learning: Students gain skills to help themselves learn, including how to focus their attention, listen carefully, use self-talk on task, and be assertive when asking for help with school work.
2. Empathy: Students learn to identify and understand their own and each others' feelings. Students also learn how to take another's perspective and how to show compassion.
3. Emotion Management: Students learn specific skills for calming down when experiencing strong feelings, such as anxiety or anger. 
4. Problem Solving: Students learn a process for solving problems with others in a positive way.
