The ROSE Model
In this wellbeing workbook we use the ROSE Model to create a blueprint to discover our authentic self and to begin living our lives by it. Life directions and life decisions become less complicated when they are viewed in the context of their true values and beliefs. In each chapter we will explore an element of the ROSE Model. We have also carefully and thoughtfully selected creative elements and coaching tools for each chapter to support you to deepen your knowledge of what is important to you. These include visualisations, mindful colouring pages, a Wheel of Life tool, a Life Resumé, quotes, reflective questions, a values tool, the GROW tool and many more. We were lucky to have the creator of the ROSE Model, Paula King, guiding the incorporation of the model. Paula is also the Director of Kingstown College. Find out more here.
The Creativity for Wellbeing Workbook was coproduced by a generous and passionate group of mental health promoters, community development workers, recovery education experts, coaching experts, people with lived experience of managing the challenges of mental distress and members of the team in Mental Health Ireland.
