What is Thrive?
Thrive is a dynamic, developmental approach to working with children and young people that helps teachers and adults to interpret their behaviour and address their emotional needs. The Thrive Approach offers practical, effective tools and techniques that work, built around a web-based assessment and action planning tool.
Informed by a developmental model, Thrive uses relational, play-and arts-based activities in one-to-one sessions, in small group sessions or in class as lessons progress.
The program supports individual assessment of emotional and social skills based on observed behaviours and baseline skills, as well as whole class screening. Each child’s needs and the strategies to address them are set out in individual, targeted action plans, which may be implemented over a number of weeks or several years, depending on the child’s needs.
