Social and Emotional Learning Skills
The ability to manage one's emotions, develop and maintain healthy relationships, communicate well with others, play an integral role in academic and life success. Social and Emotional Learning programs can successfully provide young children and teenagers with a sense of empowerment and hopefulness, which can influence happiness, positive decision making and behaviour.
Children and Teens
MindUP is a researched-based curriculum that teaches social and emotional learning skills. It is grounded in cognitive neuroscience, inspired by positive psychology and mindfulness training.
It has 5 main areas of competency:
Responsible Decision Making
The program is incorporated into 10-15 fun sessions in which children and teens learn how to self-regulate behavior and mindfully engage in focused concentration.
Children (6-12 years)
Topics covered in the program include:
Learning about feelings and anxiety
Learning to think more realistically
Parenting an anxious child
Facing fear and feeling fine
Learning coping skills such as building assertiveness or learning to solve problems
Anxiety Management Programs
Teenagers (13-18 years)
'Coolkids' anxiety management programs are skills-based programs that teach children, teenagers and their parents practical skills on how to better manage anxiety, shyness and worry. These programs, developed by Macquarie University, use a Cognitive Behaviour Therapy approach and are delivered over 10-12 sessions.
Workbook activities help children and teens practice their new skills. In addition to the skills they learn, there is also a workbook for parents. The workbook explains to parents how they can best support their child as they learn to cope with anxiety and worry.
Many people who have learnt these new skills find that once they practice them enough, they worry less, feel more confident, more assertive and are able to do things that they used to find too difficult.
The Chilled program has 4 main components:
How anxiety works and how anxiety affects people
How thoughts can control anxiety and ways to change thinking
Facing fears and feeling fine
Building coping skills that make you stronger
