SEMPI YOUTH MODEL IS BEING TRIALED IN 

WESTERN SYDNEY SPECIAL NEEDS SCHOOLS!

We are currently in negotiation with the

NSW Department of Education.. stay tuned!

Our youth need to learn a new way to speak up and have a voice about their mental and physical health. Ideally, our youth need to be able to speak safely, and without stigma, in daily conversations with their own peer groups, family care givers, and any community professionals they may interact with.

Imagine a teachable model where our youth can choose any topic that is foremost on their mind to safely speak about and feel heard, such as isolation, bullying, abuse, hunger, happiness, positivity, stigma, physical illness, mental health, ...all from the one model? Daily?

What if there was a solution to this problem?

I have written a free Sempi Social Communication Children and Youth's Model over four years. The Youth version is currently being trialed in schools in Australia! I have written this model to address this exact problem and to teach our most precious asset, our children, how to have a voice and most importantly, to feel heard.

This video shows how SEMPI has been designed to include, and empower, all members of society. SEMPI is going beyond 'Are You O.K.' If the person being asked is not sure how to answer the question!

Thanks for reading, Alyse :)

Make sure you check out the videos below, where I interview children who are experiencing bullying right now in their school, and what they say when I ask them, 'How's Your SEMPI?' It doesn't get more real than this!



SEMPI CHILDREN'S and YOUTH MODEL VIDEOS

The SEMPI children's and youth model has a more creative and colourful theme with easy to use language. The below videos are real life examples of the SEMPI model being used with two young girls who are currently experiencing bullying in year 7. Their identities have been hidden for privacy.



Bullied 12 year old school student Kate, demonstrates the SEMPI SCM.

'SEMPI Real Conversations' welcome our first 'sharer' school student to the show! Kate, is aged 12, and is experiencing bullying at school that is affecting many areas of her life. In this session of 'Real Conversations,' Kate and Alyse cover all aspects of Kate's mental and physical health when Alyse 'listener' asks Kate 'sharer', ‘How is your SEMPI?' Together, they go through the acronym 'SEMPI' together. Kate then becomes the 'Listener' and asks Alyse 'Sharer' 'How is your SEMPI?' Once Kate has learnt the SEMPI model, she can then go on and 'pay it forward' to her class mates, and the adults around her. They will all share each other's perspectives while learning empathy, and a new deeper level of conversation. Thanks for watching! Please note: due to privacy, and the sensitive nature of the conversation, the lighting has been reduced, and the student is off camera. Thank you :)

Bullied 13 year old school student Grace, demonstrates SEMPI SCM.
