Emotional Wellbeing & Mental Health - KS1 & KS2 PSHE [Philosophy Boxes] Stress, Depression, Help

The topic of this Philosophy Boxes download is 'Emotional Wellbeing & Mental Health'. It is one of a series of Philosophy Boxes sessions designed, by request, for KS1-2 PSHE leaders (though it is also useful for KS3). You can save money by downloading the entire course of 20 sessions: which would constitute a significant part to your school's KS1/2 PSHE provision.The download comprises a P4C lesson/session that can be used multiple times with the same group.The Philosophy Boxes Method is a new approach to P4C designed for students in KS1, 2 & 3: it is graphically stimulating, engaging, and fun. This download is also suitable for older students: but the format was designed with younger students in mind. In this context: 'Philosophy Boxes' represents a more student-centred 'debate & discussion' approach to PSHE issues.The aim of Philosophy Boxes is to bring philosophy and critical thinking into every subject at every level: we believe that any subject becomes philosophy when students are asked the right questions and when they think about a topic hard enough and on the deepest (most fundamental) level. The Philosophy Boxes Method presents students with a set of 'mystery boxes', when a student selects one of the boxes they are presented with 1 of 21 discussion/debate activities [that use 1 of 8 different formats].The presentation has integrated AfL so that teachers can test knowledge at any point in the lesson. There are 10 different AfL slides to choose from. The design is colourful, animated, fun and engaging: all activities require movement and teachers can decide whether students are expressing their ideas purely verbally or by using post-it notes.The nature of the design is that it can be used for short sessions (5-10 minutes) or much longer sessions (up to 2 hours!) - it allows for classroom practitioners to be flexible and adaptable. It can, therefore, be used in lessons or as a tutor-time activity.The download includes a PowerPoint Show; if you would like an editable PPT presentation so that you can make your own 'Philosophy Boxes' presentation you will need to download the template here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/-the-philosophy-boxes-method-template-for-creating-your-own-philosophy-boxes-lessons-p4c-p4k-11463227A complete selection of Philosophy Boxes lessons can be found here: https://www.tes.com/resources/search/?&q=philosophy+boxes+godwin86You can also save money by purchasing lessons as bundles.This PSHE course is based around the topics listed on the BBC Bitesize Resources for KS1 & KS2 PSHE (their content can be used alongside these resources to bolster your PSHE provision, though this download does not require additional preparation or resources) [http://www.bbc.co.uk/education/subjects/zqtnvcw]

The intervention - is divided up into 7 sessions, covering different aspects of the programme. The student pack - contains between 19 - 24 worksheets which enable the student to develop skills, log their thoughts and feelings and to form the basis of the discussions.The facilitator pack - accompanies the student pack contains roughly 35 - 40 pages which support the worksheets, suggesting what to discuss, which issues to cover and how to encourage good debate.AIMS OF INTERVENTION This intervention leads on from a level one intervention as it probes a little deeper and asks more of the student; it is designed to address more complex issues. It is for those students particularly who suffer with anxiety and stress which affects them day to day; affecting their engagement in school and life in general.

You need to carry out the student analysis and evaluate what they have already done to address their issues. These students may have been involved in numerous programmes, try and establish how they engaged or didn’t.

The intervention - is divided up into 7 sessions, covering different aspects of the programme.

It differs from many of the programmes because it focuses more on them and how they navigate their world; aiming to establish triggers to their behaviour and addressing them giving the student skills and tools to escape from their negative world. FACILITATOR NOTES These students tend to be unsure of themselves and extremely vulnerable; so managing them through this intervention programme will be a delicate task. They will likely be different sorts of phobia and anxiety etc, but hopefully they will find reassurance and support from their peers and grow in confidence as a result. REFERRAL CRITERIAWithdrawn/lonerExpressing fear or anxietyCries oftenExpresses worthlessness**This is a difficult one as some of these students ‘hide’ very well and can be highly functioning students apart from certain aspects of their life. I worked with one student who was in the ‘popular’ gang, but who suffered from one of the worst cases of anxiety and phobia I have ever seen. So just bear in mind that some students may ‘act out’ and exhibit different behaviours; he came to my attention because teachers were complaining about him going to the toilet too much (because he was freaking out!) and asking if he needed a toilet pass!!BASIC OVERVIEW OF THE INTERVENTION SESSIONS1.How strong am I? - Getting to know you basics, with an emphasis on feelings and emotions.2.What pushes my buttons? - Seeking out possible negative events and issues which may have influenced the anxiety and phobia.3.What is my go to response? - Establishing what the ‘normal’ behaviour is and discussing alternatives.4.What are my triggers? - Looking at what/who may be triggering the situations, feelings and difficulties.5.How do I want to be? - Continuing the reframing and alternative positive framework for the future.6.The way forward - Cementing the positives and making plans for future issues.7.Follow up - General, but ongoing positive focus.

ABCD - Achieving Behaviour Change Decision Log Sheet

ABCD - Achieving Behaviour Change Decision Log Sheet

This is a modified version of the ABC model which is used in a wide range of school and clinical settings to modify undesirable behaviour. It is used by staff to help them reflect on the environmental triggers for behaviour for individuals and whole groups or in targeted behaviour interventions for whole people What is different about this:The language encourages reflection on self and behaviours rather than blaming someone else. The emphasis on the language is “you” and your behaviour and the choices made. This is very important because bad stuff happens to everyone and those people who mindfully respond to situations generally get a better outcome for themselves and others. Those who externalise their problems “so and so upset me” rarely change their behaviour because they have a ready-made excuse. The drip drip drip of focus on “your choice” “your behaviour” is the only means I know of helping them realise they may not have control over what happens to them but they can control how they respond.The other main difference is that there isn’t just ABC – antecedents, behaviour, consequences but also D. Decision. When things have gone wrong in a situation it is tempting for everyone to do an autopsy. This isn’t helpful. The events are already “gone” and one the slab (to continue the metaphor). D is the “what next” “do something different” it could be setting a personal target. Or if things have gone well, encourage reflection on what well and making it “even better”. If this is about trying something different then try to change one behaviour at a time. So this takes the analysis from the past into trying to make future actions better or even better next time.

Irresistible Coaching Cards using solution focussed coaching

Irresistible Coaching Cards using solution focussed coaching

These cards were designed to be printed off as a 6 x4 car, laminated and used as a prompt for pastoral staff when managing first level interventions with students who had had more than 2 detentions or been sent to isolation. The cards are a script you can use when interviewing pupils. It is based on solution focussed methods, always driving towards solving a problem and doing something different. The only thing you will have to print out multiple times is the scaling line which is there to help the pupil focus on their feelings and improvement. The cards are self explanatory.
