Triple P: Positive Parenting Program Groups
Triple P is an Australian parenting program, with a series of tried and tested solutions for parents of children and teenagers. Parenting is one of the hardest jobs faced in life. Raising healthy, well-adjusted children who have all the skills they need for life is a stressful process, and it can be hard to know the best place to go for support, guidance and reassurance. Whether your family is dealing with temper tantrums, disobedience, or sibling rivalry ... or if you’d just like some support in setting limits and building the most positive relationships with your child, the Accoras-run Triple P: Positive Parenting Program is here to help you.
Triple P help parents to better understand the way their family works and use the things they already say, think, feel and do in positive new ways that help to:
• Create a more stable, supportive and harmonious family
• Encourage the behaviours in your child that parents like
• Deal positively, consistently and decisively with problem behaviour
• Plan ahead to manage potentially difficult situations
• Build the most positive relationships possible with children
• And importantly, support parents to take the best possible care of themselves
Stop. Think. Do.
Stop. Think. Do. is an Australian social skills group, designed to empower children by teaching them to develop confidence, self-control, decision making skills, responsibility, leadership and friendship-making skills.
Children and young people who possess sound social and emotional skills are generally better able to cope with the stressors of daily life, tend to have better relationships with parents, teachers and peers and perform better academically. Having these skills makes it less likely that a young person will experience significant mental health problems in the future. Stop. Think. Do. aims to improve children's friendship making abilities, develop cooperative classrooms, schools and homes, and support children to develop strong emotional intelligence and self-esteem.
SenseAbility is an Australian strengths-based resilience program developed by beyondblue. SenseAbility helps young people aged 12 to 18 years to enhance and maintain emotional and psychological resilience. The program is based on cognitive-behavioural principles - the evidence-based approach which says that our thoughts play a critical role in influencing feelings and consequent behaviour.
SenseAbility covers topics like helpful thinking and self-talk, emotional recognition and regulation, life problem-solving and communication, and helps young people to identify and develop their senses of self-worth, control, belonging, purpose, future and humour.
BRiTA Futures is an Australian program developed by Transcultural Mental Health which aims to build resilience around acculturation stress and bicultural identity, by promoting resilience, wellbeing and self-esteem, recognising and celebrating cultural differences, teaching life skills and coping strategies, strengthening relationships and problem solving skills and strengthening peer and community networks.
Accoras you.nique runs the BRiTA Futures group program in primary and secondary schools with high populations of students from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
