Reaching In, Reaching Out (RIRO) Resiliency Training

This training is directed to Frontline Workers

Presented by Lee Hinton, Education and Health Promotion Coordinator Saskatchewan Prevention Institute

RIRO, Reaching In Reaching Out, teaches resiliency skills to people who are working with young children or families who have young children. The first part of the training focusses on personal resiliency skills, as it is through modelling these skills that young children learn. The second part of the training focusses on strategies to increase resiliency skills in families and children. The workshop is interactive in nature and staff should be prepared to participate, move, and have some fun. Participants should be made aware that this training includes personal exploration.
