Understanding emotions and taking responsibility for negative behaviour
Revved Up is designed to help young people recognise their own responses to a variety of stressful situations that occur in everyday life. It encourages them to examine their behaviour in relation to self and others and identify and monitor its impact. This allows students to reflect upon negative behaviours and feel supported in the process of changing this behaviour.
How Revved Up works
The Revved Up program works with students to help them identify personal triggers for anxiety or anger and more affectively manage reactions and responses through discussions and activities. Through the program, students are taught ways of relating positively with others and as a result, how to be aware and of theirs and other peoples’ feelings. The program is designed to encourage young people to:
- Explore a range of feelings and the negative consequences that can occur if situations are handled inappropriately.
- Develop communication and problem solving skills.
- Practice ways of relating positively to others, so that they can consider both their needs and those of other people.
- Feel Supported in initiating positive change.
- Take responsibility for their actions.
The Revved Up program is designed and conducted using interactive activities and games, with regular debriefing discussions to solidify the learning outcomes. Stride’s trained and experienced facilitators can deliver the Revved Up program directly to students within the school or as a professional development workshop for teachers and wellbeing staff. Detailed resource material is provided for the continuation of the program and to reiterate learning outcomes. The Revved Up program can be run at both primary and secondary school levels.

“…many (students) have developed a keener sense of reflection and will often stop and think before acting.”
