How was the Curriculum created?

After a number of years working in the UK prison system, Beyond Recoverypartnered with two other charities: The Spark Initiative (Florida) and The InsightAlliance (Portland), to develop a universal curriculum that wouldmeet the needs ofmany different populations. We were all excited to see what could happen if theresults we were seeing in our different cohorts could be spread globally.The curriculum is designed to teach a new understanding of the mind and humanexperience. Its impact reduces risk factors, uncovers resiliency, and promotesemotional and psychological wellbeing for adults and youth.

how does the curriculum work with different groups?

The curriculum is flexible enough to modify depending on which populations arebeing taught. Between us the curriculum has been shared with schoolchildren,teachers, prisoners, prison staff, sex workers, people who are home insecure,corporations and individuals.

Can a participant become a facilitator?

The curriculumwas originally taught in UK prisons. Some of those participants wentonto become facilitators in their own right. Derrick Mason, a director of BeyondRecovery was once a participant on the Insight to Wellbeing programme. He now runshis own groups andmentors others to understand how their experience of life iscreated.

Do you have to follow the curriculum in a strict order?

The curriculum has been designed to build upon each of the learnings and has anatural flow. However, each module is independent andcan be taught in isolation. Inaddition, the modules can be mixed and matched to suit the requirements of theorganisation you are working in. This is because the foundational elements of themodules are all pointing to the same three Principles of the human experience.

Can the curriculum be used for leaders and managers?

The flexibility of the curriculum allows it to be used to impact trainers who work withall sorts of populations, not just in prisons and schools. The curriculum has been very useful in training people who work with managers and team leaders across differentsectors.
