The ARISE Life skills lessons satisfy many of the Search Institutes Development Assets for middle childhood, and adolescents. ARISE is particularly helpful in providing lessons to fulfill the Search Institute’s social competencies and positive identity involving peaceful conflict resolution, resisting negative peer pressure, interpersonal relationships, planning and decision making and self-esteem.
