Identifying ways to make early childhood development a positive experience, Hofanti Chokma (“to grow well”) collaborates with programs, communities and families who serve children to support developmental and social-emotional well-being through a number of activities including workshops, parenting groups and more.

Resources from the PAXIS Institute, an international prevention science company focused on developing solutions to human behavior problems, are used to prepare parents, caregivers, educators and anyone who works closely with children.

Techniques learned in PAX Tools workshops offer evidence-based strategies for teaching behavior to children in ways that contribute to more positive relationships now, and lead to improved functioning in adulthood.

A valuable method of encouraging better behavior, the PAX Good Behavior Game uses the same evidence-based, trauma-informed strategies for teaching self-regulation skills and prosocial behaviors to students. Hofanti Chokma supports training for the PAX Good Behavior Game and uses this program to help meet social-emotional learning objectives in classrooms.

All parents, family members, volunteers or staff who work with children are encouraged to attend one of these engaging workshops.
