CONFIDENT HEALTHY ACTIVE ROLE MODELS: Blending Teaching Personal & Social Responsibility (TPSR) and Arts-based education with Underserved Youth
MetadataShow full item record
The Teaching Personal & Social Responsibility model espoused by Hellison (2011) has immense fluidity in its applications and methods. This suggests that it would have potential as a partner with an equally fluid approach, Artography informed arts-based education. It is this partnership that animates this project. Using a qualitative, hermeneutic, constructivistic lens and a case study approach, this study’s multiple levels of analysis across several data sets yielded findings suggesting synergies between the life skills framework TPSR and Artography-informed arts-based education and how these synergies are used effectively when teaching a blend of TPSR and arts-based approaches in the context of the Confident Healthy Active Role Models (CHARM) program. The findings demonstrate that the synergies between the two frameworks can be used effectively in the CHARM program to support participants and students in learning and thriving in an environment that values the needs of the individual balanced with the needs of the collective.
