Wise: Emotional Fitness
HundrED has not validated this innovation
Why did you create this innovation?
To teach practical skills for regulating emotions, reducing impulsive behaviours and making better decisions. To provide participants with a strong understanding of the key emotion regulation concepts, which are founded in evidence-based research and contemporary teaching strategies. Like learning to throw a ball or riding a bike, this method allows individuals to explore, experience and practice.
How does your innovation work in practice?
Wise approaches learning from the Inside-Out to equip participants with
the practical skills to build strong connections from themselves (Inside) to
others and the world around them (Outside).
This is enhanced by the blended learning context whereby learning within
VR (Inside) is reinforced through the verbal and written self-reflective
process, and teaching others the techniques (Outside). A 9-week program,
with one lesson a week, each lesson running between 45-minutes to 1.5
hours with a VR headset and respective guide book in hand.
How has it been spreading?
Customer referrals, listeners of certain podcasts, conferences, public forums, as well as through lead generation programs of work.
