Emotional Resilience and Problem Solving for Young People will help promote the mental health and wellbeing of young people. It is aimed at teachers, social workers and all those involved in supporting young adults

Young people today encounter specific challenges and stresses in both educational and social contexts. This carefully thought out resource pack helps participants to:

  • understand the importance of mental health and wellbeing
  • recognise the stresses that they and other people face
  • develop effective managing strategies.

The authors have designed a flexible programme which contains two important concepts taught and practised throughout: the development of emotional resilience and techniques for solution-focused problem solving.

These encourage young people and adults to respond positively to the difficulties they encounter, and to focus on solutions and positive aspects, rather than dwelling on the difficulties themselves.

Topics taught in the 15 sessions include:

  • challenging stereotypes
  • multiple intelligences: more than one way to act clever
  • self-esteem
  • positive communication
  • friendships
  • focus on strong emotions
  • stress and coping strategies
  • making good decisions
  • self-harm
  • loss and endings.

Emotional Resilience and Problem Solving for Young People includes full facilitator notes and handout materials printable from a CD Rom.
