The Rock and Water Program, developed by Dutch educationalist Freerk Ykema, offers adults supporting young people experiential strategies to interact with students through physical/social teaching.

The Rock and Water program leads from games, simple self-defence, boundary and communication exercises to a strong notion of self-confidence. The program offers a framework of exercises and ideas about how to assist boys and girls to become aware of purpose and motivation in their life. 

The program is based upon a psycho-physical approach, that is, the program contains a large number of experiential exercises that support young people to develop self-awareness through physical exercises. The aim of the program is to support young people in developing:

Body-awareness - or supporting young people to become "in-tune" with their body, including body language, posture, breathing and physical sensations (e.g. stress, anger, arousal).

Emotional-awareness - this is the process by which young people learn to understand and identify emotions (e.g. anger) within their body (body awareness is a pre-requisite to emotional awareness).

Self-awareness - this is the process by which young people combine body- and emotional-awareness with their thought processes, and through this, are able to manage and regulate their emotions/behaviours in the context of their environment.
