Behaviors are acquired through conditioning – therefore, if you are able to condition children to adapt a level of consistency that motivates them to perform above their level of expectations then the child has an opportunity for growth and independence.
HIPT ADOPTED THEORY:
Our staff believes in the Health Action Process Approach (HAPA)
WHAT IS HAPA?
HAPA is a psychological theory of health behavior change that is designed as a sequence of two continuous self-regulatory processes: (1) a goal-setting phase (motivation) and (2) a goal pursuit phase (volitional). Health behavior changes refers to a replacement of health compromising behaviors by health-enhancing behaviors (such as physical exercise).
HOW DOES HIPT APPLY HAPA?
Our staff offers personalized counseling and mentoring that aims to motivate children to adapt HIPT’s philosophy. Our collaborative counseling method inspires and motivates our children to become functional members of society.
