Decider Skills and Support
Parent to Parent is now offering Decider Skills workshops to parents and children with additional support needs.
What are they?
The Decider Skills use cognitive behavioural therapy to teach children, young people and adults skills to recognise their own thoughts, feelings and behaviours, allowing them to monitor and manage their own emotions and mental health.
The skills were designed to enable participants to make effective changes to help manage distress, regulate emotions, increase mindfulness, promote effective communication and to live a more skill-full, less impulsive life.
In order to make the skills more memorable, and therefore more effective, each skill has been simplified, using a visual prompt and are taught in a fun and engaging style, including demonstrations and music.
The emphasis is on helping families and young people to deal with impulsive behaviours which are often associated with anxiety, depression, anger, addictions, eating disorders and personality disorders, all of which can have a devastating impact on the individual and their life.
How are they delivered?
- Virtually in small groups
- or face to face in small group
