At Whitcliffe Mount we are passionate about supporting the mental health and wellbeing of everyone in our community. Inspire are our in-house team who are here to support students and offer both one to one and group interventions.
The Inspire team offer a number of interventions which focus on various aspects of our wellbeing. These interventions include:
Think Good, Feel Good
Think Good, Feel Good looks at building your confidence and self-esteem. It is designed to challenge any negative thoughts and create a toolkit of strategies that can be used to challenge these thoughts when they arise. It will look at creating a healthy routine and how sleep and nutrition can help create a more positive mood.
Developing Positive Social Skills
In this intervention, students will consider how the way we communicate, through our words and body language, can express our emotions. Throughout the sessions we will discuss the techniques that can help create a more positive communication skills. It also looks at the differences between being aggressive, passive and assertive.
This particular intervention focuses on how to cope when we feel strong, negative emotions. It acknowledges that feeling angry and worried about things is very normal, but that sometimes those feelings can become overwhelming. Through exploring these emotions we will aim to identify some strategies which may help in those instances.
Coping with Exam Stress
This is a short-term intervention designed to support our Year 11 students with any stresses they are feeling around their GCSE examinations. It looks at the triggers for these worries, suggested revision techniques to suit different learning styles, relaxation techniques and creating a routine which will help you to give yourself the best start to each day.
Social Use of Language Programme (SULP)
This programme is designed to help young people converse more confidently, even when in less familiar situations, learn about themselves and make friends more easily by being able to relate to their peer and other social experiences.
Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL)
The SEAL intervention is designed to promote the social and emotional skills that underpin effective learning, positive behaviour, regular attendance, and emotional health and well-being of all who learn. It looks at how our actions can impact other people, problem solving in various situations and how to manage emotions.
Sleeping isn't Cheating
In this intervention students will explore what happens to the body and brain during sleep, the benefits and challenges of getting a good night’s sleep and strategies to promote good quality sleep, including where to seek support.
