Weaving Well-Being is a research-based mental health program that aims to enhance well-being in children aged 7–12. Each book in this series introduces students to age-appropriate concepts and skills drawn from the field of Positive Psychology, the science of well-being.
Research suggests that an individual’s beliefs have a powerful effect on their thoughts and behaviours. Beliefs can become a filter through which subsequent events and situations are interpreted. The ten lessons in the Empowering Beliefs program are designed to invite Year 6 students to adopt beliefs that will motivate and encourage them to take action when presented with new challenges while learning to deal constructively with failure.
Each lesson consists of a downloadable PowerPoint introduction, along with suggested development ideas and activities for students to complete. The accompanying Student Book allows children to reflect on their learning as they gradually build a highly personal portfolio of work.
Weekly homework activities give students the opportunity to explore how their well-being can be integrated into their daily lives. The included pull-out guide provides parents with all the information they need to actively support their child throughout the program.
