We have entered challenging times, requiring us all to consider how our thoughts and actions might help or hinder our own resilience and that of those around us.
Dr Denise Quinlan and Dr Lucy Hone (co-directors of the New Zealand Institute of Wellbeing and Resilience Conference Convenors of WENZ – Wellbeing in Education NZ) have created a brief guide to coping in the days ahead, based on the best of science but also their own (reasonably broad) lived experiences of working in emergency management and resilience training programmes over the past decade.
Please see tipsheet, presentation slides and webinar below.

WHAT IS TRIPLE P DISCUSSION GROUPS? The discussion groups are designed to provide an overview of the positive parenting principles for any interested parent. Parents are actively involved throughout the 2-hour small group format discussions.
WHO IS IT FOR? Parents or caregivers with a specific concern about their child’s behaviour. They are most likely to benefit when their concerns are around a relatively discreet, mild to moderate behavioural issue and when parents can independently implement parenting plans that are generated during each session. They are also encouraged to apply new parenting skills to other problems that may arise.
WHAT IS COVERED IN SESSIONS WITH PARENTS?
Topic 1: Dealing with disobedience This discussion topic provides examples of common forms of disobedience and some reasons why children have difficulty learning to follow instructions. A number of positive parenting strategies are then introduced to help parents develop a personal plan to prevent disobedience, teach their child limits, and also to manage disobedience when necessary.
Topic 2: Managing fighting and aggression in this session, parents are encouraged to share their experiences of aggressive and destructive behaviour from their children and discuss some of the reasons children fight. This group covers the skills that children need to be able to cooperate and get along with others. Parents learn how to teach skills such as sharing, communicating, and being gentle. They also prepare plans to manage times when fighting and aggression do occur.
Topic 3: Developing good bedtime routines This discussion topic explores different problems parents commonly face at bedtime and some of the reasons why they happen. The skills children need to get into a good bedtime routine are discussed and parents are introduced to positive parenting strategies to help prevent problems.
Topic 4: Hassle-free shopping with children This discussion topic uses shopping trips as an example of one of the most common times parents have to deal with difficult behaviour in public. Positive parenting strategies are discussed as step-by-step suggestions for preventing problems and teaching children how to behave on shopping trips. Parents develop individualized plans to manage problem behaviour during their own shopping trips and are encouraged to transfer new parenting strategies to other potentially difficult community situations.
