Case Studies

From the little girl for whom laughter yoga provided a reduction in her frequent panic attacks, to the teenager who is aiming for the Tokyo Olympics, and the little boy who could never sit still but loved doing a 3-minute meditation, we are proud to have touched the lives of numerous children, teachers and parents who have been inspired by our stories and driven to take action after experiencing the powerful positive psychology interventions built into the RWS programme.

Below, you can read some case studies and learn more about the work we do and results we achieve in terms of improving the resilience, wellbeing and ability to achieve success in all areas of life for pupils, teachers and parents. 

Would you like to find out how RWS could help your school? 

In primary schools, the programme typically runs over 9-11 weeks, and includes lively workshops, fully-resourced lessons, and videos. Throughout the programme, pupils have the opportunity to practice a range of PPIs (positive psychology interventions) [1] [2] .

As RWS runs in primary and secondary schools, as well as Sixth Forms, in the independent and state sectors, it includes flexibility to run as a set programme or to slot into wellbeing weeks, enrichment afternoons and non-curriculum days, to suit each school’s requirements and timetable availability.

Optional staff CPD and parent workshops/presentations are also available, as well as half/full CPD days.
