This is a self-directed online course for use by people aged 16+ starting College or University and who find they are affected by doubt and uncertainty about the path they are taking. It can both enlighten and inform students- as well as providing tools they can use to support them in making helpful changes in life.
Each module typically takes 10-20 minutes or so to complete and includes worksheets to help apply what is being learned.

The core sessions of the course provide many of the key CBT-based skills needed for life change.

How often should I complete a module or how many?
We recommend you work through all the modules, completing one every few days will allow you the opportunity to put into practice what you are learning.

Using the worksheets: practical worksheets can be completed by printing them on paper, or by answering the questions electronically if you prefer such as in notes on your phone. The worksheets help you apply what you are learning, make plans and review your progress.

Working with a support worker: Some people using this course may be receiving additional support from a health, social care or voluntary sector worker. It is suggested you inform and show them the available resources and discuss how they might helpfully complement – the support already being received.

This college/university-focused course can be used alone or with support from a supporter/teacher/tutor or practitioner.

A license is also available to provide access to Supporter Resources to deliver a series of life skills classes: The Living life to the full (LLTTF TM) for adults course.

Please note: the class version does not cover the same content as this particular self-directed course. The course lead would need to ask questions and give examples to make the course applicable and relevant to students attending a class programme. The online self-directed course highlights areas that would facilitate this.

Translations: Multiple language (>15) versions of the standard LLTTFTM adult books, and live classes are available.

How to provide access to clients: Practitioners/supporters can deliver the self-directed course by purchasing single use log in codes individually to pass to your patients/clients. Or a group code valid for, 10, 50, or an agreed number of patients/clients if you prefer.
