Raise Resilience London Parents Helping Children Thrive Is More Important Than Ever

Raise Resilience Programme for Parents

Bounce Forward also have a Raise Resilience programme for parents. This programme helps parents support themselves and their children to build resilience within the home. Raise Resilience starts with personal resilience, helping parents learn how to look after themselves, building self-awareness about what might be getting in the way, and helping them notice what is going well and their strengths as a parent. Following each session parents are provided with downloadable materials to use at home with their children and help them structure the way they build resilience. 

 

The programme is delivered as six 1-hour online sessions, below is an overview;

  • Session 1: Introduction to resilient parenting
  • Session 2: Optimism during uncertainty
  • Session 3: Developing the mental muscle
  • Session 4: Compassionate communication
  • Session 5: Mindsets and Energy
  • Session 6: Parenting to strengths

Since the start of the pandemic over 2000 parents have been reached with this programme. It has had a real significant impact and amazing feedback around how much it has helped parents in such a difficult time and certainly a time where it’s been needed more than ever.
