Below are some of the frequently asked questions that we get asked about Emotional Logic. If you have any other questions or queries, please contact us.
What is the EL Approach, and who developed it?
Emotional Logic (EL) provides a mental framework in which unpleasant and seemingly random emotional states can be understood to have useful and reasonable purposes. To learn this mental framework, so that it positively helps the way ongoing and past situations are understood and talked about, involves letting go of the meanings that people have previously attached to their experience of unpleasant emotions - their own unpleasant emotions, and those witnessed in others. This is the ‘lifelong learning’ core of the ‘Approach’ taken by Emotional Logic to personal development. It was developed by a GP in England during the 1990’s as an alternative to counselling and medication for common mental illnesses and socially disruptive behaviour. It has been extensively piloted in primary healthcare, carer support, counselling, pastoral support and education, and piloted in translation in many diverse cultures. Its widespread effectiveness shows that emotional processing is core to human identity shared across all human diversity, and that this is central to the development of a strong and resilient personal identity.
Emotions and logic – that sounds like a contradiction. How do they mix?
The Logic is the process of adjusting to change. You can make reasonable choices about how you do it and where you want to be in the process. Emotion, e-motion, is ‘energy in motion’. It is your personal chemistry getting organised inside to move you and your relationships in life in some new direction. (Emotion is rapidly-changing social physiology.)
Emotion enables you to get on and do what is needed to make the next logical adjustments when facing change. Reason and emotion thus are in a partnership, rather than seeming to be in conflict with each other. Adjusting to change, including facing disappointments and setbacks, is an emotional process. You are not a victim of your own emotions, however, but learning Emotional Logic enables you to make better decisions when you understand how your unpleasant emotions have meaning and useful purposes as part of the process of adjusting.
What evidence is there that EL actually works?
A questionnaire called the Emotional Logic Development Profile (ELDP) has been validated in adults aged 16 - 80 showing improved emotional resilience correlating with improved anxiety and depression. The method was also shown to be safe as well as effective. Outcomes for teenagers in a secondary school receiving Emotional Logic for behavioural support show clear improvement in ability to concentrate in class, reduced confrontation and improved relationships. There is extensive anecdotal evidence from adults and families of identity and behaviour change. We have started to work with the University of St Mark and St John in Plymouth to evaluate outcomes.
What research backs up the EL approach?
Research has progressed since the late 1990’s piloting Emotional Logic in a wide range of settings to reduce anxiety and depression, following the Medical Research Council guidelines for complex interventions. Quantitative evidence of safety and effectiveness has been gathered from primary healthcare, and qualitative from secondary community colleges. The extensive theoretical research underpinning Emotional Logic comes from the psychology of attachment theory, from the neuroscience of emotion and learning theory, from Vygotsky’s approach to discovery learning, from the physiology of emotion as a complex non-linear dynamic system affected by social relationships, and from Milan systemic Family Therapy. This has been gathered into a unified whole by the Founder of Emotional Logic as ‘Emotional Chaos Theory’. This describes how personal and social order can emerge unexpectedly from emotional chaos by consistent feedback learning about how unpleasant emotions are part of an overall and reasonable adjustment process.
What is Emotional Intelligence, and how is it different to Emotional Logic?
Emotional Intelligence (EQ, as contrasted with EL) is a term first coined when psychologists were realising that there are several different types of ‘intelligence’ that cannot be measured by a single test of general ‘IQ’ - Intelligence Quotient.
How does Emotional Logic differ from CBT?
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an intervention for anxiety and depression that identifies unhelpful habits of thinking, and then teaches behavioural methods to break those habits. There is a core assumption that emotion is a side effect of thinking (an ‘epiphenomenon’). Therefore in theory emotional distress should resolve if thought habits improve, enabling people to function better. CBT’s effectiveness has therefore been measured mostly by ability to go to work or perform daily tasks. However, many people say that although they are able to function, they do not feel well.
Emotional Logic, by contrast, identifies habitual patterns of grieving for multiple small losses (un-named personal values). These emotional habits affect a person’s sense of identity, which creates the negative thought patterns identified by CBT. Giving people insight to their emotional habits, and improving their understanding about the in-built useful purposes of unpleasant emotions, liberates a person to develop a stronger identity that includes emotion. Well-being improves as a side effect of increased social effectiveness through empathic connection with other people’s emotions also.
How does Emotional Logic fit with mindfulness?
Bodily awareness of emotions, and mental awareness of feelings of emotion, are part of the first phase of Emotional Logic’s creative conversations. This awareness is what is meant by being ‘mindful’. ‘Mindfulness’ extends that to meaning calming and tranquility encouraged as a meditational method. This is not an essential next phase after becoming mindful of one’s own or other people’s emotional state. Emotional Logic moves on from that mindful awareness and naming of emotions, to then naming the hidden losses (the challenged values) that are driving those physical emotions; and having named the values, Emotional Logic then adds making a values-based SMART action plan that builds relationship and resilience. Mindfulness is therefore about emotion regulation, calming and behavioural self-control. Emotional Logic sees that as a mindful safe place to plan, and then to move on and explore life in social settings for personal growth.
Is Emotional Logic like counselling?
No. It is lifelong learning for personal development. It is a guided way to learn about the useful purposes of the way you feel. Many counsellors include Emotional Logic in their work, but they have to learn to move from a counselling mode to a lifelong learning mode, which some find difficult. Some counsellors say that they can get as far with Emotional Logic to understand the client’s problems in one session as in five of non-directional counselling. This is because Emotional Logic directly influences a person’s sense of identity, and improves their ability to make a values-based action plan that builds relationships. Activating one’s Emotional Logic improves a sense of empowerment to engage with life constructively.
If it's not like counselling, is everything that happens in an EL session totally confidential?
Whether in a Personal Learning Appointment (PLA) shared with friends or relatives, or in a workshop, there is a group confidentiality rule that people do not share outside ‘the group’ what is said within it. Each individual is responsible for deciding what he or she shares there. The purpose of the session is learning, not therapy. Mutual respect for confidentiality is vital for effective learning about how unpleasant emotions can have constructive purposes for individuals, families and groups. This principle of respect applies also to completely private PLAs. All UK based EL tutors have DBS checks in place. The only condition limiting this confidentiality rule is that if the Emotional Logic Tutor is told something that makes him or her think the client is at risk of harming self or others, then the Emotional Logic’s Centre’s safeguarding officer must be contacted to discuss safety options, which may include contacting an appropriate care professional.
If I learn Emotional Logic, should I stop any other therapy I am receiving?
No. Research has shown that when people understand their feelings of emotion, they make better decisions. Emotional Logic will help you to understand your feelings, and to communicate about them better with your therapist, enabling you to make the most of any therapy you are receiving. It will not conflict in any way with talking therapies. Medication should be reduced by agreement with your doctor when your well-being improves.
How long does it take to learn Emotional Logic?
The basic ideas can be understood very quickly – sometimes in just 20 minutes. Most commonly it takes about six hours of interactive learning to feel competent to influence situations by using all three phases of a creative Emotional Logic conversation: understanding your emotional world; naming the hidden losses of things you value that are driving your emotions; and developing a values-based action plan with a Plan B for resilience.
The process of untangling a complex life situation is greatly helped by talking with someone who can help you to uncover and name the hidden losses – the ones you hadn’t previously recognised as a loss.
We are all in a lifelong learning process to apply our Emotional Logic every day to understand and manage new situations. The Emotional Logic Centre offers a range of learning courses to help this process along, as defined in our Prospectus. Estimated time for completion are documented there for the various learning paths available.
Is Emotional Logic hard to learn? I was never much good at school.
It isn’t that sort of learning. When you get interested in something, because you can see how it applies to you, you will just soak up the learning.
There are bits you could try learning by heart – but many people find this difficult. If you can remember some, then you can include that part of the language more easily in your conversations and in your thoughts as you are walking along in life. But first you need to understand what the adjustment process means for you, and for those you love (or who give you difficulties). Come on a workshop and you’ll understand more easily, because you’ll see how others do it differently, even though we all get to the same place of relationship building anyway! It’s odd how it works. We all grieve differently, so relax and join the human race!
What computing facilities, operating systems and software do I need to use EL?
You do not need any computing facilities to use Emotional Logic. Creative Conversations can happen anywhere, anytime. They also take place at arranged appointments, where hard-copy learning materials can be used for individualised tutoring if they are face-to-face rather than using remote online methods. To learn Emotional Logic, however, it does help greatly to have a computer with regular internet connection. We have a secure online ‘electronic card pattern’ tool, and ‘electronic Loss Reaction Worksheets’ with an inbuilt system for a tutor to provide feedback comments and advice. We use Google Drive as a standard to share relevant items, and Skype for remote support and tutoring. However, where circumstances make this difficult we can use email attachments of Word and PDF documents. For an extra fee we can also send hard copy materials, or if local tutors are nearby then a regular local ‘learning club’ can meet and learn by talking around hard-copy materials.
How often do you run introductory workshops, and when/where is the next one?
Please click on this link to see current UK events advertised in our shop. Open introductory workshops happen in various locations at least three times a year.
I’ve heard Emotional Logic can work systemically within a family, or school, or business - what does that mean?
Human beings are ‘built’ to communicate together in networks of relationships, such as a family, a neighbourhood, a school, a workplace, and so on. Each of these networks of relationships is a different ‘social system’. When people think about how ‘this family’ communicates, or ‘that school has an atmosphere’, they are thinking ‘systemically’ about the whole network, and whether individual people thrive in it or not. People in any network tend to develop habits of communicating or talking. If, for example, two people are talking critically about a third person, and that third person feels ill as a result of what they hear or see, then that person’s feeling of illness could improve if the quality of conversation between the first two is encouraged to become less critical. This type of intervention (in the habits of communication among several people) is what is meant by Emotional Logic working ‘systemically’. It works particularly well in families, but also in any community where some people are being stigmatised by the way others habitually communicate. Emotional Logic helps people to name the values that move each person’s inner heart. This brings about ‘systemic change’ by improving the subtle wider effects of our ways of communicating about our values.
What are the full costs associated with EL, in terms of both money and time commitment required?
Please see our current Prospectus and Price List for full details.
What differences can it make to my life?
People have reported very wide-ranging changes on learning to activate their in-built Emotional Logic. Apart from greater self-confidence, people feel more aware and more able to understand other people’s difficult behaviour. By understanding emotions better, their own and other people’s, they are able to make more realistic decisions. They feel better about themselves, and more able to connect with others in relationships.
People have recovered from breakdowns more rapidly, feeling able to take sensible risks to explore life, feeling less anxious, scared or guilty. Self-harming, impulsive and compulsive or obsessional behaviour can improve. Many people have been able to reduce medication – including asthma medication - because they feel more at peace with themselves. People with anger problems have been able to find other ways to express themselves – by understanding themselves better, not just by self-control.
Where do the set of seven emotions come from?
The seven emotional stepping stones are based on research primarily into stages of grieving undertaken by various groups and individuals, including the British Hospice Movement of the 1960s, and Robert Kavanaugh in his book “Facing Death”.
Getting specific help
What sort of problems can the EL approach help?
Learning Emotional Logic first of all promotes strong personal identity. People feel more empowered then to overcome life’s problems and ‘stuckness’, and to move on into new situations with greater resilience. A study in a UK General Medical Practice has shown that Emotional Logic is safe and effective to improve anxiety states and mild to moderate depression. We know from schools that some children can stop self-harming after just one learning session of Emotional Logic. It can help to move on from bulimia, fatigue states, confusion, anger outbursts, confrontational behaviour, suicidal and destructive thoughts, and low self-regard. It is powerful to improve relationship difficulties by improving mutual insight and understanding about the values that move different people different ways. Sleep patterns improve along with self-respect, empathy and capacity to make decisions. All of these ‘conditions’ are rooted in unrecognised grieving for multiple small losses that becomes complex and unresolved, which is why Emotional Logic can help such a wide range of conditions to improve.
How do I arrange some 1:1 help using the EL approach?
Email or telephone the office at any time. Messages will be collected and managed during normal office hours. An Emotional Logic Tutor will be chosen who seems best suited to any life issue mentioned, who will make arrangements directly with you about whether face-to-face or Skype contact is better. This contact will include asking you to use various ‘learning materials’ that will help you to make sense of your emotional experience. The aim is to empower you to harness and turn your unpleasant emotions to their in-built constructive purposes. The help we offer is ‘person-centred learning’, not counselling, but many counsellors have told us how effective they find Emotional Logic to be in their work to release people to explore new possibilities in life.
How can EL help to reduce stress in the workplace, and increase staff resilience?
Even an introduction to Emotional Logic, for example by a half-day workshop or using our online ‘Getting Going’ course, will give staff a mental framework that will help them to name the hidden values that are being challenged during times of stressful change. Further learning resources in our Activity Pack then equip them to talk constructively and safely with colleagues, and at a level of honesty that is not achievable simply by emotional calming. Emotional Logic guides those conversations toward agreed action plans that harness the emotional energy to build stronger relationships, even when certain values have to be let go of. That is the nature of resilience. Stress reduces as the emotional preparations are converted into chosen, values-based actions.
How do children reach their potential?
Potential is developed in children and adults by encouraging an ability to take sensible risks and to explore options, with an equal balance of emotional resilience when faced with setbacks and disappointments, and of the wisdom to cope with success without becoming self-centred and proud. Emotional Logic provides the insight needed to name personal values that are the seeds of exploration and relationships, thus enabling people of any age to discover their potential.
How does EL help a child connect with their emotional world and make sense of it?
Naming emotional inner preparations for action or reflective withdrawal is difficult in the shared world. Memories of emotional states tend to be recalled associated with situations that involve others. Therefore, the meaning of each ‘feeling of emotion’ can be complicated by recall also of ‘what happened next…’ Emotional Logic provides an overview of ‘what could happen next’ in an ideal situation of adjusting constructively to the situation. By memorising that potential, handling the emotional Stepping Stone cards and various worksheets (kinaesthetic learning) helps to name and identify emotional preparations, and then adds to that a sense of mastery over the associated feelings. We therefore are not victims of our emotions; they are information that helps us to decide and choose what is best to do next.
Is Emotional Logic for bereaved people, when someone close has died?
After bereavement, most people need to stay with the chaotic emotions for a time as they face the reality of the change that has come upon them. This is a very individual experience that may take three months or so, much longer in some cases. They need to build new routines, and find new ways to do things. Bereavement counsellors have a special role here.
Emotional Logic has been developed to help people mostly at other times in life, who have been overwhelmed by accumulating small losses, or by other losses such as relationship splits and job losses. It addresses confusion and self-doubt, distress and uncertainty in everyday situations. By giving a structured approach to gaining insight, it leads to personal development. If a bereaved person seems to be not getting over their bereavement, after several months a time may come when learning Emotional Logic will help to find new ways forward. When someone is emerging from their chaos and wondering where to move on, this may be a good time to start learning about the potentially useful purposes of these emotions.
Can it help to get rid of seriously disturbing thoughts – like wanting to commit suicide?
Yes. Emotional Logic can help to make sense of, and resolve, many different types of distress, tension and confusion, especially some that tablets or some talking therapies are not good at helping, such as self-harm, suicidal thoughts, bulimia, shamefulness, low self-regard, and so on. This is because the EL tools can identify ‘whirlpools of unpleasant loss emotions’, where people go round and round between two emotions and feel unable to move on from them. This can make people feel very stuck in life and desperate. However, Emotional Logic lifelong learning about the useful purposes of these emotions can point simple ways to step out of these shallow whirlpools onto firm ‘emotional Stepping Stones’, then to ‘shake it off’, move on, and adjust constructively to difficult situations instead.
I have a friend who has learning difficulties and can’t read well – can Emotional Logic help them if they get distressed?
Yes! We have some remarkable stories of how people with learning difficulties have been able to communicate much better after learning Emotional Logic at their own pace with people who show respect for them. We can provide mentors and learning materials designed for just such a situation. You’ll be able to communicate about things with the same understanding. Contact the office and we’ll see what we can do.
How can EL help the staff in this school?
Emotional Logic helps people to keep in mind where all their unpleasant emotions fit within a constructive process of adjusting to change. If people (teachers, parents and children) do not understand that, all these unpleasant emotions may seem to be a sign of bad character. But that is usually not true. They arise when a person is grieving for multiple small hidden losses. Because change is everywhere, knowing how to activate one’s Emotional Logic can help school staff to deal constructively with unpleasant change arising from any source - government directives, other personalities in the staff room, parents, children, one’s own family at home… The whole school community may feel more cooperative.
How can a school manage the training of new staff when there is high staff turnover?
The short-term solution is to arrange for an external trainer to run a day workshop annually for new staff. The long-term sustainable solution is ultimately more cost-effective. At least one and preferably three (for sustainability) staff members have full Emotional Logic training to Certificate level over a year (or longer if required), and thus become the school’s Emotional Logic Facilitator (ELF teacher). [Every school needs an ELF!] The fully trained ELF can train other staff to 6LP level, able to teach in classes, or provide individual mentoring, from the six lesson plans. The ELF can also supervise the use of those lesson plans more flexibly in the mentoring of individual pupils and parents, and decide if expert remote support is wise in certain situations.
How quickly could you train our staff to work with complex situations on a one to one basis?
The ‘Six Lesson Plan’ structured way to teach Emotional Logic was initially designed for classroom teaching. However, we soon discovered that school attendance officers, for example, and pastoral support staff, were able to use these to structure one-to-one and child-and-parent conversations also. Difficult behaviour and poor school attendance commonly follow from complex home or neighbourhood situations. Because these structured conversations aim only to teach the order hidden within chaotic emotions - in any situation - newly trained staff can confidently teach in this way straight away. We call this ‘mentoring’ rather than tutoring. Behavioural, mental and social order start to emerge from the chaos because of improved understanding. This sometimes happens remarkably quickly, when even one individual gains insight - called a ‘Butterfly Effect’ change of personal identity, which then influences a whole social system. We recommend remote expert support to encourage and guide the mentoring staff.
How is EL being used in schools already?
In the following ways:
• Training staff to teach Emotional Logic in classes through 6 lesson plans (6LP staff training)
• Staff mutual emotional support, and inclusion in staff supervision
• Preparing for, and supporting pupils during transition from Year 6 to Year 7
• Setting up a self-sustaining staff training capacity within the school for long-term use
• Peer mentoring using Emotional Logic
• Family and 1:1 mentoring
• Improving parent/teacher/pupil relationships to encourage the whole school community
• Using the ‘Shelly in Shock’ story book with younger primary school children.
What age group are your learning materials aimed at?
The six Lesson Plans, Student Workbook, and children‘s Stepping Stone cards’ (with picture icons) are aimed at 8-16 year olds, particularly aiming to prepare for transition from primary to secondary education. Some worksheets can be prepared as A3 wall posters to facilitate conversations anywhere, anytime. We sell good quality wall posters as well.
‘Shelly in Shock’ is an illustrated story book designed to be read to 5-9 year olds. More materials for this age range will be released during 2017.
The standard adult ‘Activity Pack’ materials can be used in conversations between an adult and any secondary school aged pupil.
What can you offer that is different to Thrive?
We have been told that ‘Thrive’ gives school staff a good and accessible understanding of the neuroscience of emotion. This can de-stigmatise difficult emotional behaviour, and so help school staff to remain calm while they guide a pupil to learn his or her own emotion regulation. The method focuses on calming behaviour, so that pupils and staff can more easily explore ‘pro-social’ alternative behaviours. It aims to prevent problems arising in children identified as vulnerable, by improving staff and parent awareness.
Emotional Logic directly equips the child or pupil to explore his or her previously un-named values safely. These personal values (Yes, even children have values!) drive the emotions, but can also become the foundation for a ‘values-based action plan’, the activation of which resolves the former emotional ‘preparation for action or withdrawal’. In this way the child (and any associated adult) learns to choose how to manage difficult life situations wisely. Emotional Logic thus promotes strong character, resilience and empathy. Pro-social behaviour and improved mental health thus follow as a side-effect of learning.
Thrive requires assessment data on children to be stored on their database, access to which involves substantial ongoing expense. Emotional Logic, being a lifelong learning method of starting creative conversations anywhere, anytime, can become embedded in whole school community culture with an inexpensive, in-house, self-sustaining staff training system.
How long does it take to establish a fully self-sustaining system of EL provision in a school or other organisation? And how much will this cost?
A self-sustaining system of Emotional Logic provision requires at least one member of staff (and preferably three for larger schools to protect against staff turnover) to be fully trained as an Emotional Logic Tutor, with the extra training needed to understand the principles behind why the specialised schools materials are effective. This Emotional Logic Facilitator (ELF) should have sufficient respect or authority in the school system to influence budgets and staff training programmes, and ideally also to influence training for staff pastoral support. This is reflected in three levels of ELF training: [a] EL Champion within the school system, [b] ELF Mentor, able to use the six lesson plans for class teaching and individual mentoring, and [c] ELF Teacher, able to teach and supervise other school staff in their use of the six lesson plans for class teaching and individual mentoring. These levels correspond with our [a] Self-Directed Learning (SDL), [b] Award qualification and ongoing Certificate training, and [c] Certificate qualification. Remote expert support is provided throughout this reflective, conversational learning process, which will last a year or longer for complete self-sustainability. The cost reflects achieving these qualifications, which can be totalled from our current price list. Sustainability is maintained by agreeing to an annual registration appraisal relationship with the Emotional Logic Centre providing at low cost an annual supportive appraisal, online CPD, and professional indemnity insurance.
How can Emotional Logic help with providing evidence of impact for OFSTED?
Schools already collect relevant behavioural and academic progress data for OFSTED requirements. Emotional Logic mentoring is a time-limited input, the outcomes of which could be correlated then with observed behavioural change for individual pupils, and parents. A questionnaire called the Emotional Logic Development Profile (ELDP) has been validated in adults aged 16 - 80 showing that improved emotional resilience correlates with improved anxiety and depression. This questionnaire, or an age-related modification of it, could be used in younger age groups under research conditions to further affirm benefit relevant to OFSTED. Our team includes experienced teachers and headteachers who can work with a school to develop a personalised system of evidence and data gathering to show the impact of EL on pupil attendance, behaviour choices, wellbeing and academic progress.
Why does your 6LP contract appear relatively expensive?
The ‘Six Lesson Plans’ contract (6LP contract) is designed to create a ‘whole school community’ development of emotional literacy. This is so that pupils, staff and parents all are able to support each other’s adjustments to changing circumstances. It is thus a low cost way to train large numbers of people to a basic level of understanding Emotional Logic, so that there is a universal language of emotions helping the school community to move on and grow. The contract is designed for 36 school staff to attend in one sitting, who will then support each other first before teaching the pupils in classes using the lesson plans, and use the same approach individually in mentoring for pupils and parents.
Why would I buy a Mentoring contract rather than a set of Remote Expert Tutor sessions?
The Mentoring Contract is a way to bring expert support into the school efficiently to see three pupils and/or parents with a staff member sitting in to learn how to go about mentoring over a number of sessions. It is thus a staff training contract, an optional extra where there are significant needs in the school. Remote Expert Support is a Skype supervision session for normally one difficult situation, involving expert interpretation of card patterns and Loss Reaction Worksheets to guide learning plans and values-based SMART action plans. Although this will lead to staff skilling, it is not so effective to learn the strategic ways that Emotional Logic can guide learning in complex family situations.
Joining the movement
Can I learn Emotional Logic by reading books?
Emotional Logic is designed to improve the way you listen and talk in situations that are emotionally demanding or difficult. It helps you to understand what is happening, and then to decide what to do.
To learn that takes practice – you need to actually do it. Therefore, you can learn about Emotional Logic by reading, but to make good use of it you will find that talking to others is important to try.
Do you train Emotional Logic ‘professionals’?
Yes. An EL Tutor has qualified with both the International Award and Certificate in Emotional Logic, and can advertise a private business as an Emotional Logic Tutor. He or she must remain registered annually with the Emotional Logic Centre to receive CPD updates online, an Annual Appraisal, and Professional Indemnity Insurance as a teacher. Many qualified EL Tutors work in various professional settings also, integrating EL with other methods appropriate to the clients, thus adding value to their profession or organisation.
Who are the EL ‘professionals’, how are they qualified and what’s their background?
Qualified Emotional Logic Tutors come from a wide range of backgrounds, some professional, some business, some simply pastorally-minded good human beings who want to make a difference to communities. They qualify by following our training ‘road map’, and gaining experience as a trainee tutor under supervision, both to run workshops, and to see people individually or as couples or families.
Can I make a living out of EL, and if so, how does that happen?
While registered with the Emotional Logic Centre as a Trainee Tutor you will be under the supervision of your Certificate course tutor. You can see and charge private clients at that time, and thus may begin to recover the costs of your training. When qualified as a tutor and registered with the Emotional Logic Centre, the ELC will invite you to integrate use of your qualification into its events calendar through either support of ELC-run courses or personal tutoring services, or inclusion of similar agreed to and run under your own initiative.
You thus might become a ‘Business Associate’ of the ELC. You could thus earn from teaching or tutoring Emotional Logic, and become further trained to become a supervisor of ELC students, trainee tutors and tutors.
Can I train to be a trainer, and what jobs can I apply for?
See “Can I make a living out of EL, and if so, how does that happen?”
Does EL provide Continuing Professional Development and, if so, what does that look like?
We maintain high standards for all our tutors. There are fortnightly CPD updates released online, and occasional advertised masterclass workshops. There are closed Facebook Groups in which tutors support each other.
Are there any annual licence fees associated with using EL, related to any aspect?
Qualified Tutors must remain registered annually with the Emotional Logic Centre to receive CPD updates online, an Annual Appraisal, and Professional Indemnity Insurance as a teacher. If an organisation chooses a variable print licence then there are ongoing printing costs; however, ELC also offers a fixed one-off payment print licence option as an alternative to ongoing costs.
