Daily social life can be challenging and confusing, both in school and at home. Through a variety of activities and discussions, our social development program covers several skill areas geared to increase children’s abilities to manage and succeed in their daily interactions with others.
An underlying theme of this program is that before we can begin to connect with and understand others, it is important for us to understand ourselves. Participants are provided with step-by-step strategies and concrete examples to increase their awareness of and control of their own emotions (such as frustration and anxiety). Below are just some of the skills and behaviours that are covered:
Over the course of the program, children are provided with the opportunity and with the feedback to understand and develop their own inner strength and resilience in the face of challenges (regardless of what those are). This positive esteem building experience allows children to take risks and learn and understand they are unique individuals – the building blocks for developing positive relationships.
