PAXIS Institute is doing stuff. Great stuff.
If there is a big problem in human behavior, we find simple solutions that can go big to have big results. Not many companies do what we do.
We use the best science to figure out why the big problem is happening. We don’t get caught up in small, pet theories. We look for explanations that can be leveraged for big change, and that will not take a lot of coin to make the big change.
We also ask a profoundly simple question in developing solutions for big problems: “Which solutions will reduce multiple problems, and which solutions will provide the broadest impact across multiple problems?” If a solution has a broad and not just a big impact, chances are that solution will be more sustainable. Why? When more people benefit, more people have a stake in the big change.
Our team helps organizations from schools to businesses to whole communities, states, provinces, and even countries find, implement, promote, monitor or evaluate, and improve to solve the biggest problem we face—human behavior. We don’t design strategies done to people; we design strategies to be done with people at every level for lasting change.

As Yamhill-Carlton Elementary School third graders worked on math problem, teacher Kourtney Fjelland watched not only how well they were handling fractions, but also how well they were behaving. Most were concentrating, cooperating, focusing on their work and staying in their seats. In other words, they were exhibiting the good behaviors students themselves suggested and agreed upon earlier in the year, also as part of the PAX Good Behavior Game.

Can Nurturing Environments “Turn On” Protective Genes?
Yes, indeed, through a process called epigenetics. Chances are you’ve never heard of changes in gene expression, since most people were taught your genes are for life. Well, we do have our genes for life—but many of our genes change their expression based on our social interactions at home, at school or in the community. Many of the genes that change the most involve our brains.
