Each session has set guidelines to direct the facilitator through the pupil’s workbooks, using discussion, worksheets and activities to engage the pupil’s in the work of emotional vocabulary development. Mindfulness is introduced as part of these programmes.
Developing an emotional vocabulary plays a critical role in emotional skill development, within this programme the Positive Parrot and Negative Newt book series is used to enhance the learning.
The culture, ethos and environment of your school/residential care setting have a profound influence on children’s mental wellbeing. InspireIgnite can work with the whole school to promote a culture of wellbeing, or this package can be purchased as a standalone programme that is delivered by teachers/counsellors, using the facilitators guide to take the class through the programme. This programme can be used on a one to one basis if slightly adapted by the facilitator making it a programme that can be used by school/young people’s counsellors.
All children are capable of extraordinary things, given the support to develop their sense of identity. InspireIgnite’s programmes are designed to nurture children’s interest in their self-confidence and self-esteem. By developing a sense of self, the children learn about how to express themselves in a way that supports the other person to listen.
There is not a gene that provides happiness or success, all children have the potential for happiness and success and supporting them to find this within themselves is the key to unlocking their world. We all face challenges within our lives and waiting for the challenge to happen doesn’t equip us with the tools to be resilient. Instilling resilience is vital.
