Learning to navigate life is a little like learning to be a circus performer; we need to juggle a few balls, balance many demands, walk the tightrope, let go and trust that others will be there to catch us, clown around a little and feel the thrills.
This workshop looks at all the demands being placed on today’s teenagers and shows them how to find balance, look after themselves, become resilient and take control of their future.
Depression and stress are some of the main issues that today’s teenagers face.
They are living in an increasingly fast-paced environment preparing themselves for jobs – many of which don’t yet exist - and with every aspect of their progress being scrutinised relentlessly.
This workshop is designed to help teenagers become resilient to these pressures showing them how to spot and deal with the danger areas in their own lives whilst looking forward in a positive and inspiring way.
This workshop is 2 hours in duration and can be delivered to up to 150 students at a time.
Students address their use of internal language leading to resilient thought processes.
Students examine the balance in their lives, identify the weak area(s) and commit to themselves to making positive changes.
Students gain a clear understanding of what stress is and are shown how to take an holistic approach to reducing the stress in their lives.
Students are encouraged to develop a growth mindset focusing on their desired outcomes.
The workshop is split into three main areas: resilience, well-being and growth.
Each area contains exercises and information designed to encourage personal development and progress thus leading to reduced stress levels and increased resilience.
To be effective learners both our body and our mind has to be fit and healthy so this workshop takes an holistic approach addressing body, mind and spirit.
The course has three main aims:
Students learn to challenge habitual thought patterns replacing stress inducing language with resilient language.
Students identify the stress points in their life and commit to making necessary changes.
Students learn how to take an holistic approach to their well-being thus combatting stress illness.
Students begin to develop a growth mindset.
The Resilience INSET Day was an excellent course and staff were energized and motivated by the training. Kim was a first rate trainer who judged the mood of the staff well and ensured that the day met their needs. The resources provided were spot on and supported Kim’s delivery well. I would not hesitate to recommend this training to anyone. The day was well organized and passed really quickly. Momentum was kept up throughout the day and I can honestly say staff enjoyed every minute.
It was indeed interactive and as well as informative. As a school we are always trying new things and one of our key focuses is to work more with parents. The session Kim delivered certainly helped us make that connection we were hoping. WE are going to try to continue this type of support for parents to support their child. Really positive and still testing students on their knowledge on Marco Polo and the elements of the periodic table. Kim was friendly, easy to talk to and nothing was ever a problem. She was indeed MAD – top session
Our year 8 students had a workshop with Natalie today. The year 8's thoroughly enjoyed the workshop as did our staff! Natalie was fantastic, she had the attention of our students all the way through. We are not sure where she gets her energy.
