What is Soetlief?

Many children struggle to define and express their emotions in a positive manner. The growing need for effective social and emotional development programs prompted the development of Soetlief Programs for children, parents and teachers. All Soetlief Programs focus on developing various skills in children to ensure that they are equipped for life.

Soetlief strives to develop leadership in all children by focusing on the development of social and emotional skills. Being a leader does not mean simply walking at the front of the line, standing on a stage or having a group of followers. Leadership is to be the best you are in every area of life where you might find yourself. In order to produce success stories we focus on training social and emotional skills.

Why social & emotional skills?


What is Social Skills?

The most sought-after skill of the 21st century. This does not focus on social skills in a determined social setting such as a sports event or crowd-related environment, but it is about close interpersonal relationships. The program focuses on teaching problem solving skills which are needed to resolve emotional and intimate, close relational issues.

What is Emotional Skills?

Emotions are abstract concepts. They are difficult for children and sometimes even for adults to understand. The purpose of the Soetlief programs is to teach children to identify, communicate and control their emotions, thus empowering individuals towards self-awareness, appropriate expression of feelings and mechanisms to regulate negative experiences will result in changed behaviour.
