SEDi was created to enable communities to build a broad understanding and qualified capability across FIVE key areas which directly impact their Emotional Safety & Resilience.  

As an infrastructure SEDi is unique, globally providing access to FIVE specialist domains within ONE learning and development environment, to equip thousands of people to build and maintain Emotional Safety & Resilience.

A Unique Combination of Learning Zones

We’ve joined forces with leading experts across FIVE specialist areas, to create ONE interconnected environment which provides powerful learning and development support to ultimately create capability.

Emotional Intelligence and Mindfulness are the mechanisms for self-awareness and the social emotional skills which harness emotions. Social Emotional Learning is the process by which educators and parents socially and emotionally develop children and young people. Truama and Autism significantly impact upon society, these are the social and emotional development factors in certain community members and significantly affect how they communicate with and experience the world around them.

Emotional Intelligence

International studies have shown that people with high Emotional Intelligence communicate better, are able to reduce their anxiety and stress, can defuse conflicts and can even improve their relationships. Fundamentally, they can emotionally bounce-back from life’s challenges.

This is an expert-led learning zone dedicated to Emotional Intelligence (EQ) for young people and adults to develop their recognition of their own emotions – and those of others – to navigate between different feelings and to label them appropriately. We nurture an ability to channel thinking and behaviour, building real capability to better manage or adjust responses and adapt to different environments, situations or types of personal interactions.


Mindfulness

The World Health Organisation suggests that more than 350 million people globally suffer from depression. Growing research is identifying Mindfulness as the complementary treatment for a range of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder. 

This learning zone is dedicated to establishing a quality of practical capability inside communities. This is to build understanding of how to utilise Mindfulness to help children, young people and adults become self-aware and also growing levels of emotional stress, anxiety and depression.


Social Emotional Learning

Over the last 20 years the field of social and emotional learning (SEL) has evolved dramatically. This is the proven process through which children and adults can be taught to acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage their emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.

For educators, youth workers, parents and carers this learning zone is dedicated to establishing a practical capability to build social emotional skills within children and young people within communities. We are providing the learning pathways for countries to create a new capability to build skills in children and young people.


Trauma (& Adverse Childhood Experiences)

Stress and anxiety stem from the impact of traumatic experiences (especially during childhood) and have been shown to be associated with the later development of a wide range of harmful behaviours in later life, from alcohol and drug use, to risky sexual behaviour, violence and crime. Medically, these are linked to diseases such as diabetes, mental illness, cancer and cardiovascular disease, and premature mortality.

This learning zone is dedicated to raising a global awareness of the impact Trauma & the longer-term socioeconomic impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences has on society. Through learning & development, communities can access expertise and resources to help them establish and maintain Emotional Safety.


Autism

People with Autism uniquely communicate and experience the world around them. Research and practice in the field of Autism Spectrum Disorder (also Asperger’s Syndrome), has highlighted how each autistic person is unique in how they are able to learn, live and work independently. Many have learning differences and/or co-occurring health conditions that require specialist support.

This learning zone is a dedicated environment which sets-out to create a new community awareness of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and the capability to provide people affected by autism with much needed Emotional Safety. We provide countries across the world with access to expertise and resources which enable professionals and also families to better establish Emotional Safety for everyone affected by ASD.
