Synopsis:

One of the five books in the Mental Health and Wellbeing Toolkit, this practical resource is designed to help young children understand how the brain affects ways we see and interpret the world. The book offers research-driven, practical strategies, resources and lesson plans to support educators and health professionals. Key sections include ‘How the brain develops’; ‘Dealing with the inner critic’ and ‘Strategies that can help us manage strong emotions’.

A Complete toolkit for teachers and councillors, this book offers:

  • Easy to follow, and flexible, lesson plans that can be adapted and personalised for use in lessons or smaller groups or 1:1 work
  • Resources that are linked to the PSHE and Wellbeing curriculum for KS1, KS2 and KS3
  • New research, ‘Circles for Learning’, where the introduction of baby observation into the classroom by a teacher is used to understand and develop self-awareness, skills for learning, relationships, neuroscience and awareness of others
  • Learning links, learning objectives and reflection questions.

This book is an essential resource for practitioners looking to have a positive impact on the mental health and wellbeing of the children and young people in their care; both now and in the future.
