Course Plan

Orientation

In the first workshop it is important to introduce a safe environment of openness and sharing. The children and parents are introduced to the facilitator and each other through games. The children and parents are encouraged through the facilitator to get to know each other to gain the most benefit out of the course.

The children and parents are introduced to affirmations and visualisation skills. Affirmations direct the mind towards picturing desirable outcomes. Children are thrilled to discover that they have the power to make their dreams and goals a reality by changing their thoughts simply through their own words. Visualisation teaches children how to develop their attention skills and define their imaginations. They can also use this skill to help calm themselves in difficult situations and create positive images to motivate them to get what they want out of life.

Positive Thinking
In workshop two the children and parents gain an understanding of thoughts, and the concept of forgiveness by creating their own personal affirmations. They learn through stories, using arts and crafts and experiencing other types of visualisation exercises. The facilitator teaches positive thinking techniques, helping the children and parents realise that it is important that affirmations are created using strong positive statements. The workshop keeps children engaged through fun activities that demonstrate the principles and reinforce the end goals.
Self Belief and My family

In workshop three, the children and parents gain an understanding of self concept. Self concepts are the way we feel and think about ourselves and are influenced by other people’s opinions of us. Each child will create a body map drawing of themselves through which they will gain insights into their own self-perception. The facilitator conducts a visual demonstration of negative messaging showing the effect it can have on the self concept process. The workshop concludes with a visualisation about love.

Feelings, Fears, Bullying and Graduation

In workshop four the children will learn to identify their own emotions, feelings and fears. Parents support their children through this process and also learn the concepts for themselves. They will learn skills to identify and specifically deal with the feeling of anger, and learn techniques to cope with and release this anger. The facilitator leads games and integrates movement and music to support the children to express emotions and feelings. Trust as an emotion is highlighted through a fun pairing game, we also teach ways to deal with bullying and the workshop closed with the children receiving their certificates.
