1.1 POSITIVE WELLBEING | 5 WAYS TO WELLBEING
Learn the simple proven ways to make your life better
Equip your students with powerful ways to support their own mental health.
The Wellbeing of our kids is at a critical point. Anxiety and depression continue to rise. Suicide remains the number one cause of death for our young people.
Yet we have volumes of research showing simple and powerful ways to increase the Wellbeing of our youth. The problem is: how do we condense all this into information that’s useful to kids?
The 5 Ways to Wellbeing is an evidence-based framework that’s proven to help with mental health and Wellbeing. Developed in the UK, it’s being rolled out across the world to great effect.
In this engaging, interactive session, Justin teaches ideas and practices that immediately help when things get tough.
1.2 MOTIVATE | REV UP: HOW TO MOTIVATE YOURSELF AND OTHERS
– even when you couldn’t be bothered
In this session, students learn how to get the best out of themselves – and the people around them.
Imagine each day you get into an elevator, and your attitude and actions determine which floor you get out. Some days, you might not make it past the lower basement levels. Other days, you enjoy million-dollar views from the penthouse suite or the infinity pool on the rooftop.
Building on the previous visit, Justin helps students take their own lives to the next level using the latest cutting-edge, evidence-based science of positive psychology.
1.3 MINDSET | OK, SO YOU’RE NOT GOOD AT THAT THING… YET
How to succeed just by thinking differently
Your students will learn powerful techniques for building a genuine growth mindset.
Why do smart kids do such dumb things, particularly when it comes to learning? So much of it has to do with their attitudes towards learning.
Imagine a classroom where students were excited that they made mistakes because it meant they were on the verge of a breakthrough.
Since Carol Dweck’s ground-breaking book on growth mindsets, educators have been quick to embrace the growth mindset principles to boost motivation and achievement in students. But is it really sinking in with students? Are they ‘getting’ it?
This session gives students practical strategies for the kind of thinking that builds relationships, competence and self-belief.
1.4 MINDFULNESS | MINDFULNESS MADE EASY
How to stop running away from your mind, and stop your mind running away from you
Give your students guided practice in simple strategies to harness the power of mindfulness.
Can children and teenagers be mindful? Is it even in their nature? Research proves the answer is a resounding yes.
This is a fun, interactive, and tasty (yes, literally tasty) session to help children focus on the here and now to overcome stress, anxiety, depression, or just lousy days in positive, resilient-boosting ways.
