Anxiety disorders are one of the most common mental health problems in children and unfortunately, around 80% of children won't receive the appropriate intervention they require.

Resilience Kit offers positive and inclusive group programs designed to help children learn better ways to cope with their emotions and life's challenges.

The curriculum introduces therapeutic concepts to children through a series of playful and creative group sessions, developing executive skills to build resilience and reduce anxiety.

 

By improving their executive skills, children find it easier to:

  • Regulate their emotions

  • Control impulses which can get them into trouble

  • Be flexible when things do not go to plan

  • Organise themselves for school

  • Initiate work and stay on task
     

    At some point, to some degree, all children struggle with emotional regulation, exercising self-control and getting along with others.

    Some children, however, need additional support to help them catch up to their peers at a similar developmental stage. Given the right strategies, tools and support, these children often thrive in their new-found resilience and confidence.

     

    After attending a group program, parents notice an improvement in their child's ability to regulate their emotions, self-talk and behaviour.

    Children are invited to take part in group programs (5 sessions) on weekends and during the school holidays in Cottesloe and Swanbourne.

    Visit www.resiliencekit.com.au to learn more about the program and enrol. Early bookings are advised as places are limited.
