An updated guide for teachers, educators and health professionals.
Why this book? For over twenty years, Madhavi Nawana Parker has seen young people in her private practice who arrive for help in the moment of challenge or crisis. Madhavi wanted to translate the knowledge and experience from her work with young people into a practical upskilling and ‘be prepared’ style program that can be easily implemented in a school, health care setting or home. Through this book, Madhavi wanted to provide an opportunity to build these skills before things go wrong – so young people feel more prepared to handle life’s inevitable ups and downs. ‘The R and WT’ provides a practical, interesting and engaging program for all schools and students, to teach lifelong skills in resilience and wellbeing right from the start.
Who it’s for? Educators, Allied Health and Health Professionals, Parents and Carers.
