Weaving Well-Being is a research-based mental health program that aims to enhance well-being in children aged 7–12.
Each book in the series introduces students to age-appropriate concepts and skill drawn from the field of Positive Psychology, the science of well-being.
The ten lessons in the Character Strengths Teacher Book are designed to help Year 2 students understand what well-being means, before exploring the 24 different character strengths that contribute to a happy and healthy life. By identifying their top five strengths and practising them on a regular basis, students grow in confidence, self-esteem and appreciation of the unique gifts of their peers.
Each lesson consists of a downloadable PowerPoint introduction, along with suggested development ideas and activities for students to complete. The accompanying Student Book allows children to reflect on their learning as they gradually build a highly personal portfolio of work.
Weekly homework activities give students the opportunity to explore how their well-being can be integrated into their daily lives. The included pull-out guide provides parents with all the information they need to actively support their child throughout the program.
