There is an emphasis on building positive, healthy relationships with a focus on building the strengths of the young person.
Leading the Next Generation (for teachers and principals)
This workshop series for teachers and principles can be delivered as a programme or as individual workshops. Studies show that many teachers and principals are experiencing burnout. This leaves them unable to tend to their own well-being, let alone that of the students. It’s easy to see why: Not only is their work incredibly stressful but, as revealed in a recent study most education professionals receive little to no training in social-emotional learning. This workshop series is designed to develop resilience, optimism, effective communication skills, emotional intelligence (EQ) and stress-management techniques that work.
> FOR YOUNG PEOPLE
The H.E.R.O. Programme
Scientific studies show that developing students’ social and emotional intelligence improves their academic achievement, emotional well-being and later career success. However, the cultivation of these qualities is something that is largely overlooked in the current educational system.
The H.E.R.O. programme focuses on the cultivation of positive qualities such as resilience, compassion, optimism, gratitude, and mindfulness. This initiates a transformation process, helping children to mature into young adults who live productive, satisfying lives and place care and social connection as central to their lives and community.
The H.E.R.O. programme is a comprehensive positive education and development intervention. It consists of modules designed to develop resilience, positive emotions, healthy stress-management strategies, and emotional intelligence. These interventions are remarkably effective and backed up by science. The H.E.R.O. programme is just one of many positive education initiatives springing up in countries such as Australia, the USA and France.
