10-session programme to help children aged 5-9 build core resilience skills
Stephanie Azri is a Clinical Social Worker in the private, public and tertiary education sectors. She lives in Brisbane, Australia.
Healthy Mindsets for Little Kids is a wonderful resource for
promoting resilience in children aged five to nine years old.
Enabling children to flourish and building their sense of control
and independence is increasingly being recognised as a goal of the
utmost importance to ensure children's wellbeing and mental health.
Stephanie Azri has written a highly practical curriculum consisting
of 10 skill-based sessions, each of which is based on engaging
activities, strength-discovering exercises and confidence-boosting
fun. With clear instructions and a wealth of photocopiable
resources this complete, ready-to-use programme is a must-have for
busy practitioners. I highly recommend it. -- Dr Ruth M
MacConville, Educational Consultant and author
It's great to see a program focussed on introducing this important topic of resilience to families with young children, and giving them a way to start discussing concepts such as identity, emotions and positive thinking. Parental involvement means that conversations about feelings and resilience can continue after the program is completed. -- Dr Fiona Zandt and Dr Suzanne Barrett, Authors of 'Creative Ways to Help Children Manage Big Feelings: A Therapist's Guide to Working with Preschool and Primary Children' and Founders of Creative Child Therapy Workshops
