Child Mental Health Week is 6th – 10th February 2017, but where do you start with introducing emotional wellbeing to primary aged children?
Understanding mental health, emotional health and wellbeing are now recognised as having a critical role to play in the lives of children. Future in Mind has emphasised promoting , protecting and improving children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing; can schools respond?
Helping children to negotiate the world of feelings, thoughts and behaviour and recognising the importance of sharing how they feel and what they think, is a good place to start.
‘Ruby Rafa and Riz. Feel Think and Do’ is a new resource written to help children to explore and understand the hidden emotional world. The pupil book tells the story of Ruby, Rafa and Riz and their experiences of friendship, family and loss. The teaching pack has guidance, 6 detailed lesson plans and activities to encourage discussion and develop pupils’ thinking.
To support staff using this resource and to ensure its full potential is realized, there will be an introductory session to give a deeper understanding and context to the resource and look at effective ways of using it.
Attendees will receive a free copy of the resource – pupil book and teaching pack (normal price £17.99) included in the £50 attendance fee.
“I recommend this practical, engaging and easy to use resource to all adults who want to support children to develop an understanding of their emotions and how to manage them” Amanda Daniels -Principal Educational Psychologist for Birmingham.
