Embedding the Weaving Well-Being Program into the Whole-School Setting

Details

Research shows that a two-component approach is most effective for nurturing children’s wellbeing in schools: the presence of a whole school culture of wellbeing and teaching children evidence-based skills and strategies. The Weaving Well-Being program is a multi-year positive psychology program, with 10 lessons for each year level. It aims to teach children these skills in a structured and incremental way. Embedding it across a whole-school setting can maximise its benefits and ensure a cohesive approach to its use. This workshop will provide an outline to the program and also offer practical suggestions for embedding it throughout the entire school.


Objectives and Outcomes

  • Explore the two-component approach to nurture wellbeing in schools
  • Provide an outline to the Weaving Well-Being program
  • Explore ideas for embedding the program in the whole-school setting
