This is a wonderful fun and interactive way to enhance emotional literacy and resilience for young people. We give you a thorough understanding of stress management, relaxation and resilience, using mindfulness and positive psychology practice and techniques to share in the classroom or at home.

This certified advanced training gives you 24 twenty minute Lesson Plans linking to PSHE, Citizenship and individual community values.
” Well-being is a skill that can be learned & cultivated, when we develop this skill we change the physical structure of the brain to create more healing pathways. Well-being emerges when we create connections in our lives.” Daniel J Siegel MD 2014

Building Resilience is pivotal to the success of your programme so we give you fantastic ideas for helping your young people cope under pressure, manage their moods, potential stressors and the arising anxiety that result from worry.
SHARING AND SHINING
Exploring talents and skills including kindness and empathy we look at some simple, fun and effective ways of improving confidence and self esteem. Using values guides, acceptance and mindfulness we navigate the signs of physical, mental and emotional well-being. We also link how our well-being can be contagious and sharing the happiness bug with those around us.
