Mission And Purpose of TIEGE

The mission of TIEGE is to promote clear standards and to offer certification and training in Emotional Growth Education. By doing this we hope to help schools and programs offer individuals the opportunity to develop the skills that lead to a life of purpose and meaning.

The purpose of TIEGE is to serve professionals in the field of specialty education, including faculty, school and program administrators, and consultants in developing a clear understanding of the role of Emotional Growth Education. Emotional Growth is not clinical in nature. It is intended to promote further discovery of human emotions and their effect on learning and relationships. By providing the training and building the skills necessary to meet the qualifications needed for certification in Emotional Growth Education, greater integrity and effectiveness can be realized.

Our Goals...

  • To Teach and Develop skills for expressing healthy human emotions through emotional growth education.
  • To Further the discovery of human emotions and their effect on learning and relationships.
  • To Increase awareness of the correlation between emotional
    wellbeing and individual learning ability.

Education can be transformed
only by educating the educator,
and not merely creating a new
pattern, a new system of action.
