This book provides a simple and practical approach to culture change in schools, health care settings and organisations working with young people. Refraining from focusing solely on young people’s growth, the curriculum provides logical and practical support to the people and systems in theirenvironment to enable and maximise growth for positive andconnected communities.
Crucial mindsets for healthy relationships, empathy, compassion, problem-solving, emotional intelligence and well-being are broken down into bite-size, teachable chunks. All blend together exquisitely to help people look at themselves and others with confidence, gratitude and compassion.
Easily applied to individuals, targeted groups and whole classes to meet the social emotional learning (SEL) or well-being curriculum, this book provides a guiding light for young people and their supporters to develop what is necessary for socially and emotionally intelligent environments.
Aimed primarily at the middle years (8–14), it is easily adaptable for younger and older students. Through role plays, discussions, journaling and practical activities each new mindset is divided into several lessons that teach individual learning components of new ways of thinking, feeling and behaving.
The Confident Minds Curriculum will appeal to teachers, educators and health professionals searching for a whole school or organisational approach to social emotional learning, wellbeing, compassion and personal growth. It is also an essential resource for homes where parents and carers can help further develop life skills that build character and optimism so their family can approach life with greater confidence.
