Program Achieve Early Childhood Program Achieve, 4th Ed. A Social-Emotional Learning Curriculum (Foundation / Preparatory Year)
Many primary schools begin their students’ journey in social-emotional learning during their first year of school (Foundation/Preparatory) before they begin Year 1.
Published research has revealed that the explicit instruction employed in this program benefits the social-emotional development, well-being and achievement of young children. The program directory of Beyond Blue – Be You lists this program as best practice for supporting children’s mental health and well-being. Over the years, over 300,000 young children have participated in the YCDI! Early Childhood Program Achieve.
Bullying – The Power to Cope (years 4 – 9)
Based on the latest research in cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), Bullying: The Power to Cope, recognised by Beyond Blue – Be You as best practice, was developed to meet a need.
This program helps students re-structure, their stress-creating, extremely negative ways of thinking (self-talk) to more moderate and distressful ways of thinking about the act of being teased or bullied. Students learn the importance of not taking anti-social behaviour personally and that they can tolerate different forms of bullying including cyber-bullying. Published research conducted at the University of Melbourne shows a very powerful impact of the program.
