This program is ideally suited to smaller groups of from 4-15 max. These sessions are aimed at 12 years plus, and are individually tailored to the young people, working with their views and values. Before the programme starts, each young person is met for a 1-2-1 session, and the group are also given a taster session. The structure of this course builds on Social connection, Openness to enjoyment, Meaning and purpose and Action, all enabled through a mindful approach.
The young people are able to reflect and discuss issues such as what ‘stresses them out’ and what ‘makes them happy’, as well as what qualities and habits they would like to build on, also we explore character strengths and they learn to identify their own, and how they enable us to accomplish and create what we want in life. The sessions are experiential with activities, games, videos and group discussion. The group dynamic is based on trust which is established very early on in the sessions to create a feeling of safety, through positive social connection.
