The DeEscalation Room Experience

The School District of Philadelphia has the eighth largest school district in the nation by enrollment. In many of these schools there has been a troubling amount of violence, truancy, low academic performance, and sexual transmitted diseases. These schools are literally comprised of neighbors. Most of the students have known each other all of their lives. Many of them are related or will see one another everyday outside of school. Yet the viciousness in which they deal with each other and the community is unnerving. Moved to action, LoveLovingLove Inc. has done a significant amount of research in to the philosophies that encourage wellness. Based on that research we have designed the LoveLovingLove DeEscalation Room for the Philadelphia public schools. This room has dual purpose. It was created to improve quality of life and academic performance. Each aspect of the room has been carefully and deliberately designed to synchronize the elements of holistic nutrition. We believe that negative behavior is a result of eating poorly, harnessing negative emotions, stress, depression and lack of purpose.
We feel that holistic health education is a viable solution to some of our most pressing issues in the schools. Our mission is to decrease violence and advance academic performance by improving the seven {7} components of health for students using holistic health techniques. We recognize these 7 components as being:
Physical- managing ones health on a daily basis.
Intellectual- learning new skills everyday.
Emotional- accepting and managing difficult feelings.
Social- contributing to the community in a constructive and positive way.
Environmental- thriving in a safe work and play environment.
Occupational- developing talents to make meaningful contributions.
Spiritual- finding purpose and meaning in life.
