Resilient Kids and Teens

What is it?

Resilience is at the heart of child and adolescent wellbeing, success and long term mental health, as they navigate their way through childhood, adolescence and into adulthood. By providing strategies to help children and adolescents with life's challenges and times of change, you enable them to survive and thrive. Through the Resilience Doughnut, this practical workshop provides the opportunity for up to 30 children or adolescents from 8 to 18 years old to understand what helps them cope, thrive and flourish during life's inevitable ups and downs. All workshops are tailored to age and life stage of the participants as well as the context of their setting. There is also the opportunity for a highly tailored workshop for smaller groups, experiencing one or more specific challenges or life transitions.

Resilient Teens

Length of session:  2 hours

This module provides the opportunity for participants to get hands on with The Resilience Doughnut as they explore the model through the life of Sam, before applying to themselves. Through the application of The Resilience Doughnut, they recognise their own strongest factors and explore how they build their sense of I Have, I Am and I Can - the core of their resilience. With this new understanding, they then explore how this is helpful to them during life's ups and downs.

You could opt to run this workshop as 2 x 1 hour sessions with a short break in the middle.

Optional Modules

Choose an optional module for younger groups from the following:

Thought Catching

1 hour (8 -12 years)

This module explores, in more depth, the connection between resilience and our thinking and helps participants become 'thought catchers' and, as a result, more self-aware of their helpful and unhelpful thinking habits. Participants are also introduced to the simple thoughts-feelings-behaviour model as a way to understand the power of our thinking. Through a range of age-relevant scenarios, participants will explore the common pessimistic thinking traps and learn some simple strategies to develop more resilient thinking habits in themselves and their friends.​

For children aged 8 - 12 years whose anxiety fuels their negative thinking you may like to consider our Bright Thinking programme or training.

Strengths Spotting

1 hour (8 -12 years) 

This modules provides participants with the opportunity to recognise and explore their own personal strengths and the personal strengths of those around them. They are introduced to the idea of strengths spotting as they explore how, spotting, knowing and activating our strengths can have a positive impact on our lives.

For those aged 10 years upwards, this module requires completion of a short online questionnaire in advance.
