Beatriz Martinez-Peñalver, a psychotherapist with more than 25 years of experience, seeks to find a solution to an “incomplete education system” and the rise of antidepressant use in the United States with “Triumph: A Curriculum for All Schools and Universities” (published by Balboa Press), a fluid curriculum and program that helps students, educators and parents live a life without limits.

“We are not doing enough to teach children how to become emotionally literate. This has to start in the schools,” says Martinez-Peñalver. “We’re failing to carry out one of our main duties: preparing the next generation to enjoy a life filled with joy and purpose.”

Martinez-Peñalver provides an overview of the Triumph Steps program to help schools lead their students to overcoming challenges. She also aims to affect the education system, which she says is in need of a drastic change: “I have never met anyone who came to treatment for problems such as depression, marital or parenting issues because they did not remember their algebra or history facts,” she explains. “Patients do, however, come to treatment for depression, anxiety, or conflicts with their family because they do not have the tools to improve these relationships, the ability to challenge erroneous thoughts, or follow their dreams.”

With “Triumph,” Martinez-Peñalver helps schools give to their students the life skills necessary to lead a successful life.
