Event Description

This one day training provides certification to  deliver the FRIENDS for Life program as a prevention or intervention program in a school or clinic setting. FRIENDS is an evidence based program that helps children and youth cope with feelings of fear, worry, and depression by building resilience and self-esteem and teaching cognitive, behavioural, and emotional skills in a simple, well-structured program.
 
FRIENDS is the only such program acknowledged by the World Health Organization.  Exposing anxious children to a 10 session FRIENDS program can reduce their risk of developing a disorder for up to 6 years.  Children with normal levels of worry also benefit by acquiring resilience to emotional stress and improved social skills.
