Unit 6: How To Become a Hero By Acting as a Witness or Ally Lesson 3
Lesson 3: Helping a Friend Build Systems of Support
In the first two lessons of this unit, students learned how to support targets of bullying and mistreatment. We now shift our focus to teaching students to recognize additional signs of psychological distress in a friend, even if there is no bullying or mistreatment involved.
Students learn to help a struggling peer identify a network of people to provide support as the peer works to make positive changes to their thoughts, feelings and behaviors.
