The Emotional Logic Centre

The Emotional Logic Centre:

an international Go-To charity for training to prevent traumatisation and help recovery from trauma.

Twelve years ago, the Emotional Logic coaching course was written from the UK as a trauma counselling module in a South African Psychology Degree. Since then Emotional Logic’s lifelong learning methods have been used to prevent re-traumatization in South Africa, the Middle East, and Russia (post-Perestroika). Its use is spreading in UK schools and other settings.

Plymouth now aims to become a trauma-informed and trauma responsive city. All 67 primary schools in the city already access Emotional Logic through the Plymouth Learning Partnership. Ernesettle’s primary school is actively taking Emotional Logic into its whole school community ethos, so parents will be able to access Emotional Logic through school connections. Its conversational life skills promote healthy adaptability, and thus prevent isolation and traumatization.

How is Emotional Logic unique?

Loss reactions to everyday setbacks and disappointments can lead to a healthy adjustment process if people understand how the unpleasant emotions of grieving all have useful purposes. Accumulating small losses over time can produce emotional overload even in strong people. Emotional Logic tools enable people to map their emotional chaos, and to use that map to find a way through. They harness emotional energy then into action plans that empower them to build relationships and come out stronger from difficult times. Compassion can then follow empowerment.
