Healthy Mindsets for Little Kids: A Resilience Programme to Help Children Aged 5 – 9 with Anger, Anxiety, Attachment, Body Image, Conflict, Discipline, Empathy and Self-Esteem

This flexible, early-intervention programme utilises hands-on activities and worksheets to address behaviour issues and teach core resilience skills in children aged 5 - 9. Based around ten guided modules, each with their own animal character, the 'Healthy Mindsets' approach helps adults to assist children in building resilience across a wide variety of themes including attachment, discipline, anger management, conflict resolution, positive body image and self-esteem, grief and loss, and anxiety. Every session comes with a complete plan from greeting to closing down, and includes illustrations, photocopiable activities, worksheets, games, colouring-in sheets, and reflective content for children to think about their own views on the issue addressed in each section. With fun, interactive and non-threatening sessions, this comprehensive resource is an ideal programme for parents, teachers, counsellors, therapists and social workers wanting to work with children and help them gain crucial life skills from an early age.

Author Bio:

Stephanie Azri is a clinical social worker from Brisbane, Australia. She has over 10 years' experience teaching resilience skills and addressing early symptoms of depression, anxiety and mental health issues in children and young people.


It's great to see a program focussed on introducing this important topic of resilience to families with young children, and giving them a way to start discussing concepts such as identity, emotions and positive thinking. Parental involvement means that conversations about feelings and resilience can continue after the program is completed.
