RIRO Resiliency Skills Training is an evidence-based, two-part program for service providers who work with children from birth to eight years.
Part 1: Introduces adults to key resiliency research and skills that enhance self-regulation skills and promote a “resilient” perspective and flexible approach to handling conflict, problems and everyday challenges.
Part 2: Helps adults apply the resiliency skills directly with children by:
- increasing their understanding of children’s thinking and behaviour
- supporting children’s development of seven critical abilities associated with resilience
- introducing child-friendly approaches using children’s literature, puppets and resilience-building activities.
This workshop is hosted by the Early Childhood Community Development Centre (ECCDC).
