Internet gaming and social media provide challenges to many families. Simon Andrews from Optimistic Kids and OK Psychology has partnered with Brenton Carle, Bachelor of Eco Tourism from Canoe the Coorong to provide a wilderness psychology program where parents and their children can experience two days completely without screens, in one of Australia’s most beautiful national parks.
OK Wilderness will:
· Assess screen use and its impact on daily life for both children and parents.
· Teach skills for coping with difficult feelings and behaviours around screens.
· Teach strategies to re-engage with school and family life in a way that is not dominated by screens.
Post-program follow-up sessions are available to help maintain new behaviours.
Private health insurance rebates may be available for the four group psychology session on the trip. Parents will need to investigate this themselves, as rebates vary.
Self-managed NDIS clients will also need to investigate whether this service is claimable on their plan.
The program is also available at our city and Tea Tree Gully offices for those who are unable to spend two days away.
Please contact the practice for more information.
