Schools throughout Australia are seeking new ways to support students with the challenges that may be faced with daily life.
Christian College is delighted to form a working relationship with Dr Jane Foster who has developed a language that schools are adopting to assist and equip students to ‘Take Emotional Responsibility Now’ (MYTERN).
This year, all classes from Williams House Kindergarten through to Year 4 will be introduced to the MYTERN language.
Teaching our students about resilience, positive emotions and mindfulness, MYTERN has been empirically proven to positively impact psychological wellbeing, life satisfaction, resilience and distress levels.
What is MYTERN?
MYTERN is a simple yet extremely powerful skill that teaches you how to take control of your response to everyday stresses and challenges, improving your mental, emotional and physical health. MYTERN is suitable for ages 3 and up, can be easily introduced, and has the potential to transform you, your school, the home and the workplace, through creating a common language.
Dr Jane Foster has already visited many classrooms around the College, working with our staff and students to enable MYTERN to be successfully implemented.
Campuses have also held MYTERN Parent Information sessions, giving families an insight to this new program.
As Christian College introduces this exciting language, initially in our Junior Schools, it is planned that we will see the expansion of MYTERN into other year levels in the future.
