This "Worry Tree" is a poster I would love to hang in my classroom. It is a resource I think students could refer to, when needed, to help them regulate their emotions and deal with their "problems" in an effective way. Eventually, they will be able to follow this process on their own, and develop their emotional competence - which is an important skill that underlies positive mental health (Reinke et al., 2011).
Nature's Embrace On a magical twilight night, high above the golden moonlit landscape, two trees embrace in a demonstration of perfect love. Their roots entwined, and birds singing joyfully in their branches, they give us all a lesson on how we should treat our precious earth. If only we could all embrace each other in such perfect harmony..!! Art by Josephine Wall
