Projektbeschreibung:

In the project Schoolwide Positive Behavior Support for Mental Health (SESAME) we adapt SW-PBS for psychosocial health in secondary schools in different European contexts.

The SESAME model aims to provide a culturally sensitive and APP-supported prevention approach for different European contexts, which improves the psychosocial health of students, reduces the burden on educational staff and shapes the school system as an educational environment conducive to learning and development.

Schoolwide prevention approaches can demonstrably lead to an improvement in psychosocial health and support educational success and social participation. In this way, they also reduce the risk for teachers and other pedagogical staff to feel burdened by students’ mental health impairments.

Schoolwide Positive Behavior Support (SW-PBS; Horner & Sugai, 2006) represents a school-wide prevention approach. SW-PBS is a conceptual framework that includes systemic and individual strategies for assessment and intervention of important emotional, social and academic skills. Therefore, it creates a safe teaching and learning environment for students, pedagogical staff and other stakeholders.

A good 1 in 5 students shows significant impairment in psychosocial health. These problems often lead to school failure, social-emotional impairment and social exclusion, and they pose an enormous challenge for their peers and educational staff.
