Weaving Well-Being is the first Irish designed positive mental health programme of its kind which aims to enhance well-being in children aged from 8-12 years within the framework of the SPHE curriculum.
This Positive Education programme consists of 10 lessons for each class level and is grounded in evidence-based interventions from the field of Positive Psychology. Positive Psychology is the science of well-being. It is underpinned by the concept that a state of well-being is not simply the absence of the negative, but the presence of the positive.
The Weaving Well-Being programme gives children the opportunity to weave positivity into their daily lives through a range of activities in a variety of areas. A growing body of research shows that positive emotions are linked to increased well-being.
The Character Strengths programme consists of ten lessons which are designed to give the children the opportunity to explore each of the 24 different Character Strengths and to help them identify their own top five strengths.
