Insight Counselling & Therapy Centre is launching a new program “Just Breathe” that is an anger and feelings management program for 6-12 year olds.
We are doing this with some of our partnering agencies such as Inn From The Cold, the Boys and Girls Club and Discovery House.
We are very excited about the programfrom the potential prevention of future violence as an outlet for these kids.
Here is just some of the information that we provide to parents of the kids participating in the program:
“Just Breathe” is an exciting opportunity for your child to express his/her feelings, build self-esteem and learn how to channel their frustration into positive actions. The program teaches children: “It’s okay to be angry or afraid. It’s not okay to hurt yourself or others”. They learn to identify their feelings and accept responsibility for resolving issues in an appropriate manner.
Activities may include games, crafts, stories and discussions. Your child will be given a parent information sheet after each session outlining what your child has learned in that session. The first session will introduce the concept of “ confidentiality” to the children.
