The MYTERN skill is based on a simple metaphor: you are the driver and only you have control of your steering wheel; you can’t control anyone else’s steering wheel; you use your emotions as your GPS; each road you drive down is an emotion; and it is only you who decides which road of emotion you will drive down.
The aim is to be in control of your steering wheel no matter what road you are on.

What can it do for me?
- realise that there is no need to blame people or circumstance for how you feel
- gain control of your emotional responses to everyday stresses and challenges
- learn that you are not failing when you drive on the rougher roads – you are building your resilience
- realise that lifting others off the red road (due to the minor daily stressors) is not helping them to build their resilience
- it doesn't matter which road you are on, as long as you are in control
When principals, teachers and parents were asked what has surprised them about MYTERN, each group expressed that they were surprised at how easily young children “get MYTERN”. Independent study re the impact of MYTERN on the Launceston community
