"It was an amazing experience and also an opportunity to learn personally as well as professionally. The subject matter is so important that this training should be available to as many early childhood educators as possible." – KA (trainer, early childhood education)

Bounce Back & Thrive! (BBT), a NEW resiliency skills training program for PARENTS of children under 8 years is now available.
