What if parents and children could learn the same language to prevent and reduce anxiety, together as a family in a supportive group environment? We know that being around others in a safe and supportive group environment naturally creates a sense of belonging.
Resilience Kit is a private practice that delivers evidence-based group programs for the prevention and reduction of anxiety. Resilience Kit specialises in delivering group programs for children and their parents at the same time and place in parallel sessions. This way, everyone learns the same language to prevent and reduce anxiety in their family. Learn how the Programs have already helped many Perth families here.
The evidence-based programs we use are the internationally acclaimed FRIENDS Resilience Programs (previously known as The FRIENDS Programs). FRIENDS Resilience has gained acknowledgement and recommendation by the World Health Organisation, having achieved over 20 years of comprehensive validation and assessment across several countries and languages using rigorous randomised control studies. As an effective anxiety treatment and prevention intervention, FRIENDS Resilience has gained international recognition amongst health and education professionals and is widely used in over 20 countries.
