‘Reaching IN… Reaching OUT” (RIRO) is a two-part program for service providers who work with children from birth to 8 years and their families. As a participant, you will learn self-regulation skills while gaining a more ‘resilient’ perspective and flexible approach to handling stress, serious problems and everyday challenges. Upon completion, you will find when you put the RIRO skills into practice in your everyday interactions, the children you work with will learn effective ways to respond to adversity and opportunity.
