Reaching IN…..Reaching OUT

RIRO Resiliency Skills Training is an evidence-based, two-part program for service providers who work with children from birth to eight years. The training uses a relationship-based, cognitive-behavioural and social problem-solving approach to prevent depression and promote resilience in children under eight years.

Part 1, Adult Skills introduces adults to key resiliency research and skills that enhance self-regulation skills and promote a “resilient” perspective and flexible approach to handling conflict, problems and everyday challenges.

Part 2, Child Applications helps adults apply the resiliency skills directly with children by: -increasing their understanding of children’s thinking and behaviour -supporting children’s development of seven critical abilities associated with resilience -introducing child-friendly approaches using children’s literature, puppets and resilience-building activities.
