Years 11 to 12 (Senior Years)


Self-acceptance is the awareness of and satisfaction with one's strengths and weaknesses, the non-judgemental realistic assessment of one's talents, capabilities, and general worth. When we're self-accepting, we're able to embrace all facets of ourselves—not just the positive, more "esteem-able" parts including body acceptance and understanding our own ‘unique-worth”. Building self-acceptance is critical to wellbeing and mental health. Benefits of self-acceptance include increased positive emotions, sense of freedom, self-worth, autonomy, and self-esteem. Strong self-acceptance also decreases fear of failure, and self-critique, depressive symptoms and an overwhelming need for approval. The activities sourced and designed provide opportunities for children and students to explore and practice self‐acceptance. Learning to be more attentive to the thoughts and beliefs (especially judgments) will support positive relationships.

Affirm Your Worth!

Self-acceptance is embracing who you are, without any qualifications, conditions, or exceptions. This activity explores positive affirmations. Affirmations will help train your mind to stop over-focusing on the negative and instead embrace the good, valuable, or positive about yourself the less desirable!
