Data Driven Mental Health

“One size fits all: great for socks, bad for beliefs.”

Colin Wright in “Act Accordingly”.

One size fits no one when it comes to social/emotional education in schools.

Many schools have found how frustrating it can be when you are looking for answers that are not supplied by off the shelf social emotional programs that sound and look good but do not meet the needs of an increasing complex cohorts of students with social and emotional problems.

This workshop looks at how schools can use simple data gathering and analytic techniques to;

  • Explain complex and sometimes confusing behaviours.
  • Predict where these behaviours are likely to become a problem.
  • Influence how these issues develop.
  • Control their proactive, reactive, and post-active responses.


This workshop details…

  • The incredible power of insightful data analysis
  • How big data can predict even our most personal habits.
  • What data from Kindergarten and Year One can predict.
  • How schools can assess student mood and well being
  • How to use data to plan proactive and organized emotion and social training based on readiness.
  • How to ensure that SEL implementation reaches teachers first, then students and families when ready.
  • Where ongoing assessment is essential.
  • How accountability can be used to guarantee instructional effectiveness
  • Why student engagement and leadership is essential to success.

Each participant will even get access to an off the shelf, free, whole school, K/12, SEL curriculum with all resources thrown in!

This workshop is a challenging, but highly beneficial, days’ work for teachers, student support workers, well-being coordinators and behaviour management leaders.
