Lesson 3

Downloads

This lesson invites students to get to know their Mad Feel. This Feel is often misunderstood, labeled as "bad" or rejected, which can lead to shame or increased upset feelings. The goal is for students to befriend their Mad Feel and understand why and when it is in charge, what it is hoping to accomplish with its actions and thoughts, and how to help manage it through healthy emotional expression, no longer identifying Mad as "bad."

Lesson 5

Downloads:

This lesson invites students to get to know their Worried Feel and understand the connection between their thoughts, feelings, and actions. Students will share examples with classmates of times they have felt worried in order to help them realize that Worry is a common experience about common situations, and that it does not mean they are not capable or strong enough to figure out a solution or think differently.
