Raise Resilience helps parents and their children to thrive
You want to support your children to grow and develop with the mental resilience they need to not only face the setbacks that inevitably will come, but also be able to thrive in life.
Through Raise Resilience, you can support yourself and your children to communicate effectively, develop empathy, nurture a growth mindset and understand emotions.
Bounce Forward has supported thousands of parents and families, up and down the country in a way that is practical and based on science.
Parents recognise the benefits of spending a little time with us to learn and understand the ideas for themselves (always useful) and then use our resources with their children at home.
Raise Resilience starts with personal mental resilience, how to look after yourself, building self awareness about what might be getting in the way, and helping you notice what is going well and your strengths as a parent.
You will also be given a downloadable handbook to use alongside the course, including activities to use with your children
What is resilience. The ages and stages for developing resilience in our children. How the brain works and the importance of negative and positive emotions.
This session explores the link between what we think, how we feel, and how we behave. Flexible and realistic thinking lies at the heart of resilience, it enables us to do the ‘right’ thing at the right time, so we achieve the best possible outcome. Optimism wedded to reality.
Helping our children gain more control over how they feel and behave. Reframing unhelpful choices, and developing empathy for self and others, so we can navigate uncertainty and learn to fail well.
Effective communication is essential as our children move into adolescence. We can find ourselves in cycles of nagging and bickering and focusing on the ‘big’ conversations, and with it, we become disconnected. Resilience and compassion are the keys to staying connected.
Nurturing and developing a growth mindset in our children. Understanding the psychological link between energy, emotions and behaviour.
Identifying the unique strengths of our children and us – and how to use them to best effect.
Six sessions that walk you through the science of mental resilience and how to build it in for yourself and your children.
Raise Resilience is useful for all parents who want to learn resilience skills. The activities are designed for children aged nine and above.
We often get asked whether the materials are suitable for children with SEN. Whilst we have no specifically designed the materials for SEN they can be easily adapted and shaped in different ways.
The sessions are intended for parents on their own.
