Peaceful Kids

Program structure

 

The 8 week program runs a weekly session (approximately 1 hour) that firstly explores feelings, emotions; introduces healthy coping strategies and finishes with a mindfulness mediation. The program also engages with parents. Sending out a weekly email to summarise the session and provides an audio recording of the meditation, for the children to practice at home.
