What do we do?

The program has three key components.

Character Assessment: Character Strengths for Students survey will identify their top three to five character strengths, called ‘signature strengths’. When you are using one of these character strengths, you learn more quickly and you feel more energised and engaged.

Workshop: Workshop is experiential workshop, so we’ll be actively doing activities and have fun. There are four, two hours workshop with kids and One, two hour workshop with parents.

The Game: In the game, students develop their own avatar, based on their personal character strengths. They travel in a virtual world overtaken by a negative force, which has drained colour from everything. Students navigate individually through the game, making choices as they interact with a range of characters that are overwhelmed by negativity. The avatar must be recharged daily by inputting three good things, encouraging them to evaluate their life through a positive lens.

Note: The game is designed for iPAD and PC (Windows or Mac)

Does this really work?

The workshop is based on Acceptance and Commitment Training (ACT), which is a unique empirically based psychological intervention that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies, together with commitment and behaviour change strategies, to increase psychological flexibility.You can read about all the scientific evidences at this link..

There are also activities from Positive Psychology and Well-being Theory. Positive psychology is the branch of psychology that uses scientific understanding and effective intervention to aid in the achievement of a satisfactory life, rather than treating mental illness.

On top of this, the program is associated with Australian Higher Education:

  • Links to the Australian HPE and NSW PDHPE Curriculums
  • Links to other curriculum areas: English, Science
  • Links to Australian Curriculum: General Capabilities
