Creating resilient children
We make mistakes thinking our children are little people who can just keep chugging along. Children need support, structure, consistent direction, and protective childcare. This may mean paying attention to your child’s sensitivities to loud noises, crowds, lack of sleep, food, and discomfort. Parental warmth, responsiveness, and sensitivity foster the development of self-regulation, reports Monitor on Psychology. Help your child become resilient and able to problem solve by fostering other loving relationships with caring adults and peers. We do know that stress and hardship (abuse, neglect, exposure to violence) can alter the developing brain increasing the risk for cognitive and developmental delay. If you or someone you know could benefit from supportive parenting skills give us a call.
We seek to address the immediate needs of elementary school students 5+-12 by providing individual and group sessions that deal with these topics:
- Coping skills/Resiliency training
- Social interaction
- Acting out behavior
- Impulse control
- Bullying- no one has the right to use force, physical or mental, against another
- Stress and Anxiety, Depression
- Confidence Building
