FRIENDS RESILIENCE PROGRAMME
Accredited Training for Post Primary Teachers in Sligo/Leitrim
The Friends programme is internationally recognised and has a strong evidence base. It helps students to develop resilience by teaching them effective strategies to cope with, problem solve and manage all kinds of emotional distress, including worry, stress, change and anxiety.
Teachers who complete this two day accredited training will be able to register as certified facilitators with “FRIENDS Resilience” and can order materials and access additional resources in order to run FRIENDS in their school.
The training will be delivered by psychologists from the National Educational Psychological Service and will take you through the “FRIENDS for Life”, “My Friends Youth” and introduce you to the 16+ programme “Strong Not Tough”.
SUBSITUTATION COVER AVAILABLE FOR DEIS SCHOOLS ONLY
