The Wellbeing Alphabet™ is a new parent and child developed approach to positive emotional wellbeing (www.thewellbeingalphabet.com). The resource has a focus on happy feelings and good behaviour. As a parent, I discovered the need for a fun, child-friendly approach to teaching positive emotional wellbeing. The Wellbeing Alphabet™ teaches wellbeing words from A-Z. Using the alphabet as a frame of reference ensures that The Wellbeing Alphabet™ is memorable and there is early evidence of behaviour change through this approach.
The Wellbeing Alphabet™ is designed to be a universal resource as all children benefit from increased emotional awareness. Consultation confirms the potential for added benefits for children with additional social and emotional needs. The Wellbeing Alphabet™ is most suitable for the 4-9 age range. The full programme is currently available in English with a pilot produced in Spanish. The ‘wellbeing words’ have been translated into twenty three additional languages.
