This 6-week group therapy program helps children aged between 9 and 11 to learn new ways of dealing with difficult thoughts and emotions to improve their overall wellbeing.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Identify their emotions
  • Develop strategies and tools to help
    manage their emotions
  • Identify which coping skills work best for them
  • Reduce negative behaviours
  • Display increased resilience

Parents will also be involved in the program and will learn emotion coaching strategies, which have been linked to increased parent confidence and wellbeing. Parents will be involved in the final 10 minutes of each session to reinforce learnt strategies throughout the
week.

This program is funded by the North Queensland Psychological Therapies Program. Children will need a referral and Mental Health Treatment Plan from their GP address to Connect to Wellbeing Townsville. Consent is also required from all legal parents and guardians for children to participate.
