The Rock & Water program is an experience that provides young people and adults a pathway to self-awareness, and increased self-confidence and social functioning.
Each participant of the Rock & Water program undergoes a journey of self-awareness as they learn about responding to life with either a "rock" or a "water" attitude. The use of symbolism is central to the success of the Rock & Water program and the reason why young people are drawn to the program.
The program is an excellent tool to support young people in finding their grounding, learning how to centre oneself and learning how to self manage in social settings. Topics covered in the program include: intuition, body language, mental strength, empathic feeling, positive feeling, positive thinking and positive visualizing. Discussion topics include bullying, sexual harassment, homophobia, life goals, desires and following an inner compass.
Participants will receive many Rock & Water games, options, strategies and exercises that can teach young people:
Verbal and emotional expression
Physical boundaries and personal safety
Emotional and behavioural regulation
Skills required to respond to and manage aggressive tendencies in both themselves and others
