Established in 2010, the Bright Programme offers a range of therapeutic interventions to the whole school. We provide staff support, staff training, organisational consultancy, student counselling, group work and clinical psychological interventions to students. The programme is fully funded by DCC.
Our vision is to create a psychological space that can be used by staff and students to be more self-aware, resourceful and to make informed decisions around relationships in a learning environment.
We believe that clarity of roles, trust in others, informed policies and procedures allow for a better framework for a successful learning environment.
By strengthening the psychological life of students, staff and the school as a whole, everyone has access to greater resources which can tolerate the emotional blocks to learning and invite equality, success and motivation.
History of THE BRIGHT PROGRAMME
THE BRIGHT PROGRAMME began in 2010. Over the past 6 years we have provided thousands of therapeutic interventions to both students and staff. We began working with whole class groups using the SPHE curriculum as a base line. We ran weekly training session and individual support to staff. Always adapting and responding to the needs of the school, we now provide a broad variety of interventions. A summary of our work provided is detailed below.
