The Aboriginal EMPATHIC Program: PS4-42/21-2009E-PDF
"The Aboriginal Emotional Maturity Problem-Solving & Awareness Targeting Higher Impulse Control (EMPATHIC) Program is a school-based curriculum designed for students in grades one to five. It was implemented in the Eskasoni Elementary and Middle School, Nova Scotia, between 2003 and 2006. EMPATHIC is based upon the Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies (PATHS) program which is widely recognized in the United States as a proven program to prevent or reduce levels of violence, crime, or drug use. The program was modified to reflect Aboriginal cultural values and teachings."--Introduction, p.1 of 2.
