“Happy Hour”

Growing up can be hard and although we know we can’t make the hard stuff go away, we can learn and practice some protective factors that help lighten the load and develop resiliency. Happy Hour is a 5-week 1 hr group structured program designed to help your child develop strategies that facilitate greater overall happiness, promote healthy coping skills, and encourages self-compassion.

Some topics/activities include:

  • Mindfulness
  • Taking care of your body
  • Cultivating gratitude
  • Random acts of kindness
  • Finding your strengths
  • Humour
  • Finding ways to bounce back

During each session, your child will be working on building their own coping skills toolbox. Parents will be asked to provide a cardboard box or plastic container, the approximate size of a small shoebox, to aid your child to build this toolbox. A screening interview with the facilitator prior to the beginning of the program may be requested by either parents/caregivers or the facilitator.
