Healthy Mindsets for Super Kids: A Resilience Programme for Children Aged 7-14


Product Description

Published UK, 2013
Self-esteem, communication skills, positive thinking, healthy friendships and dealing with anger, stress, anxiety and grief are all crucial parts of being resilient and having strong life skills. We join forces with superheroes Steemy, Link, Zen, KipKool, Holly and Hally, Beau and Angel in this 10-session program to boost resilience in children aged 7-14. Each session focuses on a key theme and a superhero character helps to teach each skill, from overcoming anxiety to dealing with grief. A creative hands-on activity closes each session and session summaries and tips for parents encourage children to continue learning and building their skills between sessions. An engaging comic strip story about the superheroes runs throughout the program. Sessions are flexible and easily adaptable for use in different settings and with younger or older children, and include photocopiable worksheets.
