Self-Esteem & Confidence Booster
Small Group Intervention Programme
for children aged 5 to 11
'Happy to be Me'
Low self-esteem can be a real learning barrier for some children, and can inhibit their ability to take a full and active part of school life. The lack of belief and insecure feelings that result can also have a negative cycle throughout both their school and home life, creating an inability to cope with life's challenges. If we BELIEVE we can learn, then we will learn BETTER than we would have otherwise!
'Happy to be Me' is a 6 session programme which is aimed at school children (ages 6 - 11 years) who may be experiencing low self-esteem, lack of confidence, attachment problems and/or feeling insecure. However, it is also a valuable programme for children with healthy self esteem to learn essential 'self-esteem maintenance' tools that they will be able to draw upon for their lifetime.
Through the use of games, exercises, craft activities, stories, songs and relaxation the facilitator will look to help each child fill their own personal 'life's tool box' with lots of tips and techniques that they can use when they do feel down, lack self-belief, feel insecure, don't want to face new situations / experiences and feel that they don't belong.
By helping our character 'Cog' through his own self-esteem journey, the children will get to take 'reminders' home with them.
There is virtually no reading so it is accessible to most children, whatever their ability, and it is NOT technology driven.
The target pupil audience are those with low self-esteem and who can normally be represented by one, two or more of the following characteristics:
Will probably feel unloved
Will tend to avoid new and different situations
Are generally unable to deal well with failure
Tend to put themselves down a lot
Feel that their efforts are never quite as good as others
Are constantly comparing themselves to their peers in a negative way
Each of the six 'Happy to be Me' Programme sessions has a full detailed lesson plan, and works towards a specific aim and a set of objectives.
