Self-Science


Self-Science

Self-Science is a curriculum for Social-Emotional Education. First published in 1978, Self-Science was described in Daniel Goleman's 1995 book, Emotional Intelligence. The 2nd Edition of Self-Science was published in 1999 by Six Seconds.

Self-Science uses an Experiential education approach providing exercises, or experiments. Students are then asked to reflect on their own thoughts, feelings, and actions during the experiments. The purpose is to help them become more aware of their own decision-making processes and the costs and benefits of their choices.

Emerging from the Human Potential Movement, the Self-Science process was first described in the confluent education program at the University of Santa Barbara. In 1978, Karen Stone McCown and Hal Dillehunt developed the elementary school curriculum at The Nueva School.
