This program was designed for a Secondary Support Unit class and uses outcomes from the Australian Curriculum in English and PDHPE. It was created for my weekly Social Skills lessons and investigate what students know about healthy and unhealthy relationships. This is done by examining various forms of behaviours and communication; both inside and outside the school.
Students will also explore their highly personalised triggers and how their response to conflict affects how they and others feel. They will learn techniques in identifying if they are feeling overwhelmed or develop strategies such as distancing themselves from stressors or asking for help from an appropriate adult.
Resources, data and content have been taken from current evidence-based research in relation to adolescent mental health (e.g. R U OK?) and campaigns that have been released from Australian and U.K. Education Departments in addressing young peoples’ wellbeing. The sources and material used range from KS1-KS4 so that they are age-appropriate for both Primary and Secondary students in a Support Setting.
