Adult resilience

Adult Resilience is one of the FRIENDS programs, which were created by Dr Paula Barrett. The FRIENDS programs are cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) based programs, endorsed by the World Health Organisation, as best practice for the prevention and treatment of anxiety and depression, promoting resilience in families, schools and communities.

 This evidence-based program provides innovative, coping, resilience skills for adults of all ages and all walks of life. It is especially useful for parents, to increase their resilience, parenting skills and ensure the FRIENDS “language” is spoken at home.

By attending this program participants will learn skills and tools such as:

  • How to identify feelings and develop empathy
  • Controlling and regulating intense emotions
  • Relaxation techniques
  • Mindfulness skills and exercises to stay in the moment, focus and relax
  • Preventing bullying
  • Resisting peer pressure and developing positive relationships
  • Compromising in tricky situations and avoiding conflict
  • Choosing appropriate role models
  • Setting realistic and achievable life or study goals
  • Organisation and focus skills
  • Developing non internet-based friendships and relationships
