We offer group work programs especially designed for school age children.
Our children’s group work programs help build self esteem, resilience, empathy, communication and problem solving skills and create a positive sense of Self.
Birdwing Warriors is for children aged 7 to 12 years of age. The programs are for 7-10 year olds and 10-12 year olds, and offered at the wonderful Malanda Wellbeing Centre with Keran, Emily, Kirsten and Sarah Jane facilitating the two age groups once a month on a Monday!
At Birdwing Warriors children learn self regulation skills via role plays, experiential opportunities and play based activities. Children are offered relaxation techniques to promote their mental health and well being. We assist children to use their Super Powers and Awesomeness for good; this helps promote their social skills, belief in Self and ways of supporting their communication. Craft, arts, games, challenges and fun are incorporated into each session.
Parents and carers are involved in understanding the potential value of these strategies and we support them to be incorporated within the home setting.
