Overcoming adversity and building resistance to ongoing stress or prior trauma often make it difficult for youth to regulate their emotional responses when facing challenges in school and work, life and relationships. As participants learn the skills and strategies in Mind Matters, they can begin to take charge of themselves and their responses to what life throws at them. Participants learn to address their physical, relational, and mental health needs. In these 21 sessions youth learn proven ways to deal with stressful, perhaps adverse, life experiences using innovative methods based on current research and neuroscience.
Our risk reduction and prevention curriculum is derived from the T.E.A.M curriculum approved by US Dept of Justice and Delinquency Prevention. This curriculum is delivered in 25 Sessions weekly or biweekly at high risk/turn around schools. The curriculum features several empirically based interventions adapted for implementation in delivering context to middle-school students. The curriculum's philosophy is to target factors that have been found to put middle-school students at-risk for delinquent behaviors. The four risk factors with the most robust empirical support are truancy, lack of school engagement, association with deviant peers, and victimization. The curriculum intends to teach middle-school students skills and strategies for combating each of these four risk factors. The strategies are taught in the context of a group setting in which the participants receive instruction and opportunities for support by Program Facilitators as they practice using the skills being taught. The curriculum focuses on the development of the student's strengths and motivations. After an orientation session, eight sessions of the curriculum address development in school engagement, followed by eight sessions on peer relationships. Seven sessions address victimization, which features strategies for preventing bullying and violence among peers and self.
