About this course
PERSONAL STORIES OF SUCCESS, ADVERSITY AND RESILIENCE
#compassion #stories #emotion #inspiration
Stories, especially those about real people and their lives, can change our attitudes, opinions and behaviours and inspire us. Like the 'hero's journey' - the foundation of many Hollywood movies and countless books - stories provide us with compelling examples that we can apply to our lives.
In this course, students will immerse themselves in inspiring life journeys not only from well-known people but also Haileybury alumni.
Part of the Haileybury THRIVE programme, this course provides parent materials on the neuroscience of narrative, along with discussion prompts to provoke conversations about the nature of success, failure and resilience; how to create a virtuous cycle of emotional engagement with others; how this develops compassionate behaviors; and how this has the potential to make us happier.
