Resilience programs for Perth familiesLearn to prevent and reduce anxiety
Do you ever think that we could overcome many of life’s hurdles if only we had developed social and emotional resilience from an early age?
We specialise in the delivery of evidence-based group programs to enhance social and emotional intelligence. To date, we have helped hundreds of Perth children, adolescents and adults build resilience and learn helpful strategies to manage and cope with worry and stress.
Group programs for children to prevent and reduce anxiety
Like many Perth parents, we can sometimes be concerned about the social and emotional wellbeing of our children. We know from research that if a child experiences constant or excessive worry or fear about normal, everyday activities or uncontrollable events, this can affect their learning at school and their quality of life. To help, we run group programs to help children develop social and emotional resilience from an early age.
Group programs for parents to address childhood challenges
We are all about building resilience in the family – not just in the child. We run group programs for parents and caregivers to address common childhood challenges and to equip them with skills and strategies to build resilience in their family. The group programs also provide parents and caregivers with the opportunity to ask questions and receive feedback in a safe and supportive environment.
Building resilience in the family
The success and effectiveness of the Programs is largely dependent on the involvement of the primary caregivers. This is why we deliver the intervention in parallel for the child and their parents/caregivers to strengthen resilience in the whole family.
