Table of Contents

This 10 session programme provides a creative and engaging way of teaching children the cognitive and social skills that are essential for building optimism and resilience and how to recognise and combat negative thoughts that bring about loss of self esteem, depression and eventually disaffection.

Throughout the programme children are introduced to the key insights of positive psychology; ie., the importance of being connected to others making friends; celebrating strengths and recognising what we are good at; holding a thoughtful attitude rather than being reactive to whatever happens to us. Overall the programme aims to teach pupils the skills that will enable them to understand and manage barriers to learning, how to effectively control pressure and to recognise that there are certain skills which they can learn and use to make their lives go better.

Sessions include:

What makes us happy?

Let s be friends
