The challenge with Positive Psychology applications is to make them culturally relevant. Many parents and teachers ask for material that is appropriate to the South African context. In order to support this, we have produced an illustrated book of children’s poems that explain each of the 24 VIA character strengths using the lens of South African wildlife. We have attached one of these poems for you, which you are welcome to use. It depicts the wildebeest representing the strength of bravery, and discusses  how children can use this strength in their own lives.  The book can be ordered directly from us, but will also be available on Amazon shortly.
