A comprehensive approach to help young people maintain their self-esteem and wellbeing.

Encourage young people to be positive in the light of the many challenges that face them by inviting them to consider themselves as ‘mental athletes’ who can overcome the obstacles they face while realising the benefits. The programme contains a session overview, learning objectives, resources, activities, a plenary session and ideas for further development.

This comprehensive resource:

  • Helps young people to find ways to turn disappointments into opportunities
  • Empowers students to face all the challenges that life offers in a positive manner
  • Provides a framework to facilitate personal growth and development
  • Is a colourful addition to any SEAL and PSHE programme

The file is divided into 15 pre-planned units that are accompanied by a range of features that include fictional stories to provoke discussion, role models who have triumphed over adversity, circle time discussion prompts, drama exercises, activity pages and games. All resources can be printed from the accompanying CD Rom.
