New Program--Bounce Back & Thrive, RIRO

We're proud to announce the arrival of  Bounce Back & Thrive (BBT)!

BBT is an evolving evidence-based resiliency skills training program for parents with children under the age of 8 years. It's a successful adaptation of Reaching IN...Reaching OUT (RIRO) resiliency skills training for professionals.

BBT helps parents build skills that increase their capacity to role model resilience in their daily interactions with their children.

BBT was designed to be delivered by trainers working with non-profit organizations in local communities. The skills training enhances the capacity of parents to provide caring relationships, role model skills that build resilience and then apply and practice those skills directly with their children. BBT is an interactive program delivered in 10 sessions. To find out more,  download the BBT brochure from
