RISE UP! A two-part virtual camp on Self-Esteem
PART 1 : MAKING PEACE WITH OUR SHAME
"You could have done better!"
"You are so messy."
"Why is your face like that?"
It is common in our Asian culture to 'educate' children by shaming, which often comes in a form of criticism and punishment. Adults tend to subconsiously shame young people by belittling their feelings and actions , or by making them feel that they are not good enough.
Although most of the time we adults intend to send these messages out of love for our young, shaming interactions as such will further cultivate fear, insecurity, emotional suppression, and lack self-esteem in them. The toxicity of social media consumption does not make it any easier.
So what is the first step to help our children and teens make peace with shame? RISE UP! will guide them to
Recognise that shame mostly come from external sources and therefore, must not be internalised
Remove their mask of shame that blocks self-expression
Enhance and protect a healthy self-esteem
Activities in the self-esteem camp include
• Therapeutic art
• Creative writing
• Breathing techniques for confidence
PART 2 : CHALLENGING OUR INSECURITIES
Once it is understood that negative thoughts and irrational beliefs can be rooted from external sources, insecurities can be challenged by cultivating self-love. In Part 2, our children and teens will learn how to
Discover their positive qualities
Confidently present themselves
Compassionately present others
Activities in the self-esteem camp include
Breathing techniques for confidence
Script to network/ make new friends
