The DEAL (Developing Emotional Awareness and Listening) resources by the Samaritans offer teachers a comprehensive package of engaging teaching material focusing on emotional wellbeing and communication skills. The resources are aimed at students aged 14 and over and are free. The lesson plans and materials included in the DEAL resources are split into units which focus on the following key areas of the emotional wellbeing of young people;
• Emotional health
• Coping strategies
• Dealing with feelings
• Connecting with others (communication skills)
Each of these units has clearly outlined learning outcomes and splits the key content into both 60 minute and 20 minute sessions. The units outlined are designed to be flexible and allow teachers to adapt it to their pupil’s specific needs.
The programme includes teachers' notes, lesson plans, guidance on staff training and assessment activities. The resources are linked to both the National Curriculum framework and the PSHE Association Programme of Study.
