Resilience Workshops for Children and Teens

Building Resilience in Community Organisations

The Resilience Doughnut provides a powerful, yet easy to use, tool for children, adolescents and adults with a solution focused, strengths-based practice at its core. Communities with a positive climate practice a whole-community approach to the development of wellbeing and emotional resilience, which involves everyone in their natural interactions each day. This is what we help you to achieve.​ The Resilience Doughnut is groundbreaking in its approach by impacting on the whole community. Everyone takes the same approach and the same message, providing a community able to foster resilient individuals.​​

If you are involved with a community group, or would like to develop resilience within your community, explore the links below to find out how we can help.



Resilient Kids and Teens

By providing strategies to help children and adolescents cope with life's challenges and times of change, you enable them to survive and thrive.


Using 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 the 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.

Bright Thinking

Bright Thinking is a fun, engaging and practical 6-week programme for children whose anxiety fuels their negative thinking. Developed over 12 years ago at The Resilience Centre in Australia and delivered successfully over 50 times, the programme demonstrates a significant reduction in children’s anxiety and a dramatic increase in their social and personal competence.


Bright Thinking is a strengths-based programme. Rather than a focus on the child’s anxiety or worry thoughts, it encourages a focus on what’s working! Throughout the programme, children recognise pessimistic and optimistic thinking, while giving them the solution focused skills to get from one type of thinking to another.
