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 book is aimed at 4th Class (ages 9-10). 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. The Tools of Resilience programme equips children with 6 practical evidence-based strategies for building resilience and coping with problems, anxieties and the many normal challenges of life. Each lesson consists of a PowerPoint introduction, suggested development ideas, and specific activities in the children’s activity 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 reflecting the unique components which enhance their individual well-being and resilience.
