PEER SUPPORT WEEK 5: FLEXIBLE THINKING
Many skills and processes that our young people need to become independent have to be explicitly taught to them. This week in Peer Support students investigated the skills of critical and flexible thinking. These skills allow them to gather information, brainstorm possibilities and think logically to plan and make decisions. This knowledge is transferable and applicable to most situations in their lives during the school years and beyond. The highly effective strategy of taking a break was also discussed this week. This involves time away from the phone, computer games or the TV! It is crucial students have an outlet or activity they enjoy to let off steam and gain clarity. This may be something simple like walking the dog, kicking a ball, going for a run, reading and playing or listening to music.
