Back on Track Transition Programme > Create Calm
This module from the University of Creative Arts has been developed to help students increase their awareness of the benefits of creativity for their wellbeing and resilience. Students will be introduced to the importance of creativity and positive wellbeing through a short audio presentation, learning how creative activities can help support good mental health, and top tips for how to stay positive and resilient.
Students will learn how to create a 'Gratitude Journal' by viewing a short video workshop recorded by UCA tutor and textiles artist Elizabeth Whibley. The module develops skills in communication and encourages students to switch off from their everyday pressures and reflect on and express their feelings and thoughts. After creating their journal, students are encouraged to continue to use this as something to help them in their own time.
Create Calm is suitable for all students in Years 9-13, regardless of creative abilities and interests. Students do not need to be studying a creative subject to take part. Students will require access to the internet, as well as low-cost accessible materials such as paper and glue in order to complete this module.
Students are encouraged to register their personal details before accessing the online resources. This is not mandatory however and students may still access the resources without entering their data.
