GoZen is a scientifically researched and animated program!
Kids and teens ages 6-15 learn skills of resilience including stress management, anger transformation, adopting growth mindsets, and more using a combination of animated programming as well as printables, worksheets, and stories.
GoZen is a very engaging class where learners will be introduced to appropriate coping skills and exercises. It will be an open discussion that will incorporate drawing and encourage questions. We will begin with ice-breakers and introductions.
Each learner can bring an item that they feel represents them or makes them feel more comfortable. I believe the best way for a student to learn is to be able to be comfortable and engaged while learning. In this class, we will discuss what stress is, the difference between dangerous and not dangerous stress as well as coping mechanisms. Children will have the opportunity to practice a coping/grounding activity from the NSW curriculum. They will also have a chance to discuss specifics, if they wish, about what stresses them and any coping mechanisms they may already use.
The plot of the story:
Welcome to the colourful group of characters who all attend school in Fliderdale together! You will learn a lot more about each one of them as you move through this program. Even though you just met them, do you feel like you can relate to any of the characters? Perhaps you get worried about taking tests, just like Nelly does? What about Tomas, who gets nervous about meeting new people – has that ever been you? Maybe you have a pet at home like Mr. Diddlydoo? He really loves his cat, George.
There are 6 modules that we go through in 6 days. At the end of each module, we will complete the practice interactive scenarios and printable worksheets together. Children will receive a graduation certificate and make friends in an inclusive environment.
Ever since we have finished the anxiety program I have noticed my daughter stopping to think before she worries too much, and it has helped calm her down. So we give it 2 thumbs up.
B got on the bus to school today. He hasn’t been on the bus in 3 weeks! I’m not saying he is free from anxiety, but this is huge progress and it’s because of this program.
