A Methodology Rooted in
Emotion Science Fundamentals

ThinkHuman’s training methodology was developed by cognitive scientists from Columbia, Stanford and UPenn based on decades of psychology, neuroscience, and learning research. Called Deep Emotion Learning (DEL), the methodology focuses on enhancing the two fundamental building blocks of social and emotional competence: 

1) emotion knowledge and 

2) a habit of reflection.


Why It Works: The Science 

An Evidence-Based Platform

A recent efficacy study at Columbia University demonstrated that two weeks of using the platform resulted in significant improvement in emotion management compared to a control group.



Higher EQ is like a smaller carbon footprint: it’s good for you AND the world

ThinkHuman.tv helps improve fundamental socio-emotional skills like self-awareness, perspective-taking and emotion management that translate to a variety of contexts including school, work, and romantic and family relationships. The impact of the training can be further enhanced through one-on-one sessions with emotion science experts.

"This is a fantastic use of media in teaching emotion regulation fundamentals and strategies. I think clinicians and clients often struggle to take materials learned in-session and apply them to real-world settings. This medium offers a crafty novel method in providing useful details and applying them in a fun way."

- William, 31

"I think the use of TV shows is very effective! I did enjoy using the tv shows to analyze characters' relationships."

- Chimene, 17

"These past two weeks have made me aware of my own emotional response and now I have words to describe them! I've started noticing the emotional response of my roommates in our daily interactions as well."

- Sitara, 25

"It helped me gain more awareness about the emotional processes others might be going through and their coping mechanisms."

- Danielle, 27
