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 7-12 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, 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.
Weaving Well-Being is now the well-being programme of choice in the majority of Irish primary schools and has recently been licensed to Australian publisher Hawker Brownlow Education and UK publisher Pearson Education for use in the schools in their respective markets.
This Character Strengths programme is aimed at 2nd Class (ages 7-8). It 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. Each lesson consists of a PowerPoint introduction, suggested development ideas and specific activities in the children’s Pupil Book. There is also a homework page consisting of an activity to be carried out over the week at home and reported back on. The children gradually build a highly personal portfolio of work in their Pupil Book, reflecting the unique components which enhance their individual well-being and resilience. A pull-out parent guide is included in each child’s Pupil Book to support parental involvement. The lessons are designed to be implemented within the framework of the SPHE curriculum. Each of the ten lesson plans include the relevant strands and strand units for ease of planning.About the Authors:
