We are currently busy planning our programs for 2014.
With our child and adolescent resilience programs, Connect 3 and Link3d Up full in Term 4 and many on a waiting list, we suggest you register you're interest now, if you haven't already done so, rather than wait till the 2014 dates are advertised.
Early in 2014 we plan to offer a program for 5 - 7year olds to help with emotion regulation and control. It would be practical and skills based, teaching children how to identify triggers for anger, anxiety, frustration and then how to process these triggers without becoming overwhelmed. A parent talk without children would form the first week of the program. Details of this program are not yet on our website but if you might be interested in such a program email email@example.com, expressing your interest.
