Mental Health & Emotional Resilience Workshops

Skills for a balanced life

Resilience is typically thought to be about being able to survive and withstand psychological trauma. However, it is also about the ability to learn, grow and thrive as a result of the experiences we have. The key is to learn resilience techniques and have space to practice them.

 

KIP Education’s Mental health and Emotional Resilience workshops, look at how to change our perception of stressful events that happen, by challenging negative thoughts. This goes beyond simply ‘thinking positively’.

 

Our workshops are a great way to introduce the key components of resilience and mental health.

Children and young people’s sleep is an increasingly important issue. Poor quality and insufficient sleep can be both the cause and effect of wider health problems. It was good to see recognition of this issue in the Government’s statutory health education guidance, which suggests that all pupils should understand ‘the importance of sufficient good quality sleep for good health and how a lack of sleep can affect weight, mood and ability to learn’.

Lessons in key stage 1 to 5 include teaching about:
