The Need of Holistic Interventions in Schools: The Promotion of Healthy and Sustainable Personal Development among Children

Danilo Garcia, Anders Drugge, Helen Blixt Samuelsson, Ulrika Storm, Trevor Archer and Kevin M Cloninger

It is our opinion that interventions at school should target the development of, besides empathy per se, character development. Here we first present a biopsychosociospiritual model of human personality, secondly, two interventions that are relatively common in Sweden for the development of children’s social and emotional skills and then detail a non-published study in which differences in character point to areas of development for interventions at schools.
