Healthy Social Behaviors Project (HSB)

Supporting teachers to promote healthy social-emotional development and reduce the expulsion rate among young children in licensed child care centers across North Carolina.


The Healthy Social Behaviors team provides teachers and child care providers with technical assistance (TA), coaching, and training based on the Pyramid Model, a conceptual framework of evidence-based practices for promoting healthy social and emotional development in young children.

The HSB Project offers CEU level training and contact credit hour training. Training is available face-to-face, online through Zoom and/or asynchronously through an online learning platform.

All training is based on Pyramid Model foundations and aligns with North Carolina Foundations for Early Learning and Development to meet the needs of children in our state.

Please refer to the HSB Training Descriptions for more detailed information on each training course offered. Registration fees vary based on agency and training type. HSB is also responsible for fulfilling DCDEE Administrative Actions based on discipline issues.

For additional information about training through HSB, contact your local Behavior Specialist or HSB’s Education Specialist, Liz Tuttle, at
