Preventing alienation and social disorder with Emotional Logic

1 Apr 2020

By Trevor Griffiths, Founder – Emotional Logic

The purpose of this paper is to report on eight years of piloting an innovative, practical, lifelong learning intervention that improves emotional intelligence in families, schools, communities and workplaces in a unique way: each person gains insights to adjust constructively together to disappointments. ‘‘Emotional Logic’’ identifies a root cause in accumulating complex loss reactions that produces the destructive behaviour, self-centredness and vengefulness seen in riots and other distress and tension reactions.

‘‘Emotional Logic’’ is a teachable language technology, with a set of tools that safely maps emotional chaos. From this mapping, a learning plan is generated that guides self-help action and improves communication at the right emotional level to promote co-operation between people and prevent recurrences of distress reactions.
