The FRIENDS programs are a universal program; they help all people of all ages build resilience, confidence and emotional well-being by teaching cognitive, behavioural and emotional skills in a simple, well-structured format. The programs are suitable to use in either 1:1 situation, or in small groups of children or with a whole class of children.

“Children who are emotionally and socially skilled are more successful at school.”

“Children who are emotionally and socially skilled relate better to other children, teachers and parents. They are more competent in dealing with stress and school work.”
(Aber, Jones & Cohen, 2000)
