Children in need of resilience

The mental health and wellbeing of the children and young people is an increasing concern for schools and organisations that support them. Mental health problems are on the rise and many organisations and schools feel ill-equipped to manage these challenges. This especially important now during the current time of unprecedented change and uncertainty all of us are experiencing. Supporting children and young people to develop resilience is a key component of any school or organisational approach to supporting their mental health and wellbeing. The Department for Education has now made pupil mental health, wellbeing and resilience a priority for schools.

 

Resilience and Wellbeing Workshops for Children and Young People

Worth-it's fun and engaging resilience and wellbeing workshops give children and young people the opportunity to explore a variety of resources for supporting resilience and developing wellbeing. The sessions encourage the development of positive coping strategies, helping participants to better manage the pressures and challenges they face in their daily lives.

Our workshops are flexible to fit a range of school or organisational requirements and are underpinned by an evidence-base of positive psychology approaches proven to build resilience and wellbeing. Our team of national consultants can deliver the workshops remotely via web conferencing or in house.

HERO - The foundation for our workshops

Our sessions are based on developing Psychological Capital (PsyCap) in children and young people. PsyCap combines the psychological resources of Hope, (Self) Efficacy, Resilience, and Optimism (HERO), all key resources for wellbeing, that when combined are more effective than when developed alone. Developing PsyCap result in better outcomes in areas of personal development, wellbeing and achievement.

Our HERO workshops provide evidence-based wellbeing lessons that can support pupils develop strategies for resilience and wellbeing in order to cope with the changes to schooling and homelife that is impacting on their wellbeing.

Evidence Basis

How wonderful it was to work with you. The children learnt so much from you and we all felt inspired by your enthusiasm… As a school, we were hoping to find someone who could help us to promote a message of self-confidence and self-worth, but also to help the children realise that it is up to them to do their best to think in a positive way. That message was put across so very clearly. We were very lucky to have found you!
