Skills for Recovery

Skills for Recovery incorporate key ideas from the series of resources produced by Renfrewshire’s Nurturing Relationships Approach (RNRA), ‘Nurturing Wellbeing to Build Back Better’.  The materials include some key psychological theories which can help people to cope with difficult events and contribute to improved wellbeing.  It uses language and ideas consistent with the Living Life to the Full for Young People (LLTTF) curricular lessons which many of the pupils in your school will be introduced to in PSE lessons.  Click here to access the full Skills for Recovery resource.

Although this resource has been developed principally for use by staff teaching the upper stages of primary and S1-6 in secondary, education staff from all sectors may find the ‘staff’ sections help them to reflect on key messages from the ‘Nurturing Wellbeing to Build Back Better’ resources and offer practical ways to put these resources into action in their settings.

All staff should use part or all of this resource (you will find essential information for all staff in the ‘key messages’ and ‘what can staff do?’ sections of each week).

Teachers of P6/7 pupils can use Skills for Recovery as a stand alone resource or as part of their Health and Wellbeing curriculuar input.

Secondary Pastoral/PSE teachers should use this resource to structure PSE lessons for the first 6 weeks of the new school session.

Skills for Recovery now also includes a digital resource for secondary pupils, secondary parents and parents of primary pupils who are in isolation/lockdown.  These have been shared through our newsletter and also our Twitter.  Click here to view these resources on the Skills for Recovery pupil page of our blog.

We have also developed a more focussed resource in the form of 6 digital leaflets which is suitable for staff, parents and secondary pupils to use to support their wellbeing.  These cover the following topics:

  • Supporting ourselves
  • Supporting others
  • Hoping
  • Survival responses
  • Coping with change
  • Feel better straight away
