AWAKE looks at these issues:
Aware of what they know and feel
What they need - information, skills, support
Authenticity - Be themselves and face the fears
Keeping eyes forward - Look ahead opportunities, possibilities, and change
Everyday mindfulness - be in the now, present and awake
How they can be intentional in their decision making
How to respond, not react
We work at ways to be confident in how we interact with others and strategies for managing challenging behaviours. Our own and theirs.
Positive listening and speaking skills are covered.
Positive mental health is discussed and what we need to remain mentally, emotionally, and physically healthy.
We look at daily habits, eating, sleeping, rest, and activity.
The program is fun, engaging, age appropriate, and respectful of other cultures and beliefs. Children of all abilities are welcome.
