Happy families are ones where parents can recognise both their own and their children's needs, and where children are resilient and are able to negotiate relationships with those around them. Families Coping seeks to build these skills and provides the tools to do so.
Families Coping brings together two frameworks - positive parenting skills and the transactional model of stress and coping - to create a program of positive psychology aimed at parents, children and counselling professionals.
It provides a toolkit for parents that can be used in a self-help mode or as an instructor-led program. It brings together tried and true principles of good parent-child relationships, which will benefit the family through childhood years and beyond.
It includes exercises for both parents and children, tools and techniques for building resilience, information on additional coping services and resources and much more!
