PATHS

 

Programme for promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies

 

At Broad Oak,  we incorporate the PATHS programme into our curriculum daily. The PATHS programme , which has been developed by Barnardos is designed to facilitate the development of self-control, emotional awareness and interpersonal problem solving skills in children.

 

 

There are four major factors that are addressed by the programme which focus on self-control, emotional understanding, problem-solving skills and creative self-expression.

First, we teach children to “Stop and Think”, a response that facilitates the development and use of verbal thought.

Second, we provide children with enriched experiences which will help mediate understanding of self and others.

Third, we teach the children to integrate emotional understanding with cognitive skills to analyse and solve problems.

Fourth, and very critically, we encourage the development of verbal self-control over behaviours.
