‘Peaceful Kids’ is a Mindfulness and Positive Psychology based program to lessen anxiety and stress and increase resilience in children from Prep to Year 12. The program gives children the skills, practice and support to utilise coping strategies that lessen the symptoms of anxiety and stress. This program helps children to build their emotional resilience so they are better equipped to deal with the day to day stresses that life brings them. The program also involves parental involvement and commitment to supporting the strategies at home.
Children learn life long coping skills such as :
- A range of Mindfulness Meditations
- Positive psychology exercises
- Techniques to lessen worrying
- A range of practical and expressive coping strategies
Participants will be able to learn how to facilitate the Peaceful Kids program with a small group of children through an 8 week intervention program.
Participants needs to have a background in teaching, mental health, social work, counselling or psychology to complete this training
