Helping our Kids to Flourish: An Introduction to the Weaving Well-Being Program

Details

Research shows that nurturing children’s wellbeing is the foundation for all other successful outcomes. Although our children are facing increasing challenges in recent times, we can equip them with the skills to cope and to flourish despite the challenges and difficulties they will face. The Weaving Well-Being program is designed to provide children with evidence-based skills and strategies from the field of positive psychology, which is the science of wellbeing. It is a multi-year program created for children from the ages of 7–12 years and comprises 10 lessons for each year level. This workshop explores the background of the program, ideas on implementing it and many of the practical strategies it provides.
