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.
We are a Licensed Partner of FRIENDS Resilience (previously known as The FRIENDS Programs). FRIENDS Resilience is a set of programs focused on developing emotional resilience in children, adolescents and adults using an evidence-based curriculum.
FRIENDS Resilience was developed by Professor and Clinical Psychologist, Dr Paula Barrett, an internationally recognised ground breaking researcher in child psychology. Dr Barrett had published widely in the areas of prevention and treatment of anxiety and depression as well as the promotion of resilience through her programs.
Group programs for children
Like many Perth parents, we can sometimes be concerned about the social and emotional well being 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. We run FRIENDS Resilience group programs to help children develop social and emotional resilience from an early age.
Group programs for parents
We are all about building resilience in the family – not just in the child. We run FRIENDS Resilience 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.
