Compassionate Communication

Effective communication builds understanding and trust. When parents and their whānau understand and trust each other, they are better able to work together to support tamariki’s wellbeing and development.

For our tamariki to thrive, their physical, mental, emotional and social needs must be met. When parents are skilled and confident they can form a warm and secure attachment with their children that meets their developmental needs.
Parents create a nurturing environment for their children to grow up in, and tamariki and young people achieve developmental milestones, feel good about themselves and have a strong sense of self-identity. 
Learn to use Nonviolent Communication, and The No-Fault Zone game to increase your ability to prevent and resolve conflict. The programme will help you to experience greater connection in your relationships and express yourself more effectively. Compassionate communication workshops are interactive, engaging and fun. We provide experiential learning to build skills and understanding about common barriers that can lead to misunderstanding.
Learning aims:

  • Create an environment where tamariki feel heard, valued, and supported.
  • Build trust and connection.
  • Understand and communicate limits with confidence and empathy.
  • Balance your needs with the needs of others.
  • Move from reactivity to responsiveness.
  • Discover blind spots in the use of language that keep us trapped in habitual stereotypes, bias, and limiting beliefs.

Resilience & Recovery

Resilience helps recovery from trauma. Yet any tamariki and rangatahi can be traumatised, however resilient. Once traumatised even resilient children become vulnerable.This course shows how resilience is linked to recovery from trauma, and how adults can help tamariki and rangatahi to develop resilience.

This course will enable caregivers to support and tamariki, rangatahi, and whānau to assess their own strengths and capabilities. It provides skills to take positive action in order to improve their own environment, relationships, experiences and outcomes.
Learning aims:
  • Identify key issues that impact on tamariki and rangatahi.
  • Discuss issues such as bullying, family breakdown, loss, identity, peer pressure, relationships, bereavement, trauma, conflict etc.
  • Investigate how mental and emotional wellbeing can be supported and influenced by their environment, their peers, adults, whānau and community.
  • Self-esteem will be addressed in the context of the individual but emphasis will be maintained on the core concepts of resilience, self-efficacy and confidence.
  • Explore communication theories in order to increase participants’ understanding of the way key interactions and positive environments can influence tamariki and rangatahi’s mental wellbeing.

Circle of Security

At times all parents feel lost or without a clue about what our child might need from us. Imagine what it might feel like if you were able to make sense of what your child was really asking from you.

The Circle of Security® is a relationship based early intervention program designed to enhance the connection between parents and children. Decades of university-based research have confirmed that secure children have increased empathy, greater self-esteem, better relationships with parents and friends, enhanced school readiness, and an increased capacity to handle emotions more effectively when compared with children who are not secure. 

If you are a new parent, or you're struggling with difficult behaviour in your toddler, don't waste another minute with time-out, rewards charts and punishment. 

Using the COSP™ model developed by the Circle of Security originators, our trained Facilitators work with whānau to help them to:

  • Understand their child’s emotional world by learning to read emotional needs
  • Support their child’s ability to successfully manage emotions
  • Enhance the development of their child's self esteem
  • Honor the innate wisdom and desire for their child to be secure
