WIRED FOR WELL-BEING – (Secondary Schools)
Written by one of the authors of the extensively used primary school programme, Weaving Well-Being, Wired For Well-Being is a new 3 -level SPHE and well-being programme designed for Junior Cycle students (ages: 12-15). It aims to teach students to understand and enhance their own well-being through a range of evidence-based strategies and skills. It was created in line with the Junior Cycle Short Course SPHE strands and the Well-Being Indicators outlined in the Well-Being Guidelines for Junior Cycle (DES, 2018) The programme is incremental in nature – concepts and skills are reinforced and revised throughout the 3 levels. Concepts from the Weaving Well-Being programme (primary level) are also reinforced and further embedded. However, each level can be delivered as a stand-alone course also. The programme is drawn from the fields of Positive Psychology and Neuroscience, in order to develop positive well-being habits for life.
