Healthy behaviors influence happiness and develop social and emotional learning (SEL) competencies for elementary school-age children.
Having an open discussion with students on how to manage emotions, reduce stress and fear, be a good friend, hurtful words, increase empathy and kindness and ask for help when they are struggling and sad. In addition, if there is a particular issue or concern that your school has experienced, that needs to be part of our presentation, we can tailor it to your individual needs.
Promoting a child’s mental health helps them relate well with others, provides a sense of security, and fosters their growth both at home and in school. In addition, awareness and early intervention have been shown to help prevent or delay the consequences of mental illness (NAMI, 2016).
The LRJ Foundation recognizes the importance of mental health education and awareness in children.
The 35 – 40 minute LIVE interactive presentation is best held in a smaller group setting, with less than 100 students per session and a small group classroom is preferred. The students that have been a part of our presentations enter singing and smiling as our intro music is playing, they are attentive and engaged throughout, and leave with giving hugs to the presenters as they open up about their feelings and leave with some pretty fun giveaways!!
The purpose of this presentation is to inform students on how their behavior can impact their day. In this presentation, students will become acclimated with how their behaviors can impact others, lead to tangible and intangible rewards, thereby producing feelings of confidence and pride within themselves. Students will also been given scenarios to encourage active participation during the presentation.
Part IV: Assertiveness
In this presentation, the connections that students have made regarding the relationship between thoughts, emotions, and behavior will be evident to teach an extremely important skill—assertiveness. In this presentation, students will learn not only about assertiveness, but also how to use proper assertiveness to speak up for themselves and others. This presentation will also promote a beginner’s level to being able to empathize and understand other students’ behavior.
