The Friendship Formula is designed to help upper primary/lower secondary aged students develop their communication and relationship skills. Such focused intervention has proven to yield better results when it includes the peers and family of the targeted pupils. This unique programme encourages such involvement, including letters home and questionnaires for parents, as well as promoting peer education and whole-school awareness of the issues explored.
The Friendship Formula is designed to last a full school year and consists of 40 sessions, divided into four units focusing on:
- self-awareness and self-esteem;
- emotional awareness and regulation;
- conversational skills;
- friendship and relationship skills.
Each session includes detailed notes for the adult facilitator, practical activities, games and role-plays as well as photocopiable worksheets. Throughout the programme, children work toward creating an 'All About Me' book which helps them learn about and respect themselves and others. It is designed for use with small groups of 5-8 children, but could also be adapted for larger groups. Perfect for children aged 9+ or for pupils who have already completed the Socially Speaking programme.
