We are progressive psychologists who believe that every child has a right to be educated on how to take care of their mental health. Through our interactive evidence based ‘7 Steps to Emotional Intelligence’ program, we educate children, parents, teachers and corporates about how to take care of their mental health and cultivate a pro-social mental health environment.
Everything taught is research driven and individually tailored for children and adults to understand. Schools and organisations working with Motus Learning have dramatically raised the education bar by not only preventing future mental health problems but also promoting everyone’s potential. Join the Motus Movement!
The ACT Campaign is a campaign that is pushing for mental health education to become mandatory in the educational curriculum in Ireland. Alongside more communication between health and educational services, more priority on mental health of teachers and mental health leads in schools.
We are currently working alongside the University of Limerick Psychology department to understand how the 7 Steps program benefits stress tolerance as children transition into secondary school.
The UCC School of Applied Psychology carried out a service evaluation in 2019 and we continue to receive consultation from several of their psychology professors.
Recent research has found that our gut health and microbiota have a direct effect on our mental health. We ensured the highest quality of education on the topic of mood foods via consultation with registered dietician Paula Mee.
Sleep is an essential part of maintaining positive mental health. We have had consultation alongside Breege Leddy, who is the former head of sleep at the Maher Private Hospital, founder of the private sleep clinic ‘The Insomnia Clinic’ and one of the leading sleep experts in the country.
Children can’t have positive mental health without looking after their physical health also. Exercise is an essential way to help balance this. To ensure the correct exercise education is being provided, we work alongside exercise science qualified Bluezone Fitness.
At Motus, making sure our program is scientifically proven is essential.
Alongside UCC, our research demonstrated that our program statistically improves beneficial emotion regulation strategies, emotional intelligence and well-being.
