Inspired Young & Healthy People have worked with Primary and Secondary schools and in communities across Bradford. We work with young people aged between 9-13 to promote positive mental health and develop their self-esteem. The sessions that we deliver are Solution Focused, Person Centred and tailored to the individual young person.
The Inspired Young and Healthy People team provide a person- centred approach and the core values are that we are understanding (empathic), accepting (having unconditional positive regard) and genuine (congruent).
We also work with a solution focused approach to support young people with social, emotional and mental health issues. The reason we promote this way of working is because the central element is how we talk and listen to young people. How we talk about events and ourselves has the capacity to change how we are. Solution focused practice aims to restore young people’s problem-solving potential and mobilise their own inner resources or resourcefulness. We like to find out from young people their strengths and finding out what works for the young person. We offer eight sessions that can be group or one to one work. The workshops will have a different theme each week and will focus on individual children’s strengths, how to deal with worries, managing conflict and how to deal with bullies, teamwork and emotional regulation. These topics will be delivered through exciting games and interactive activities with a core theme of fun running through them.
The main aims of the project are to:
Reducing isolation - making friends, communicating with others, joining in interactive games/activities, clear signs of involvement, actively engaging in the team.
Feeling less helpless - improving confidence, improving interaction, fulfilling their potential (or at least trying), trying all activities, becoming less concerned about failing, controlling emotions, using all capabilities/skills.
Greater sense of being heard - becoming listened to, finding their voice, raising important issues, joining in group discussions, initiating conversation with peers and adults, being fully engaged.
