The STAR Program

The STAR Program

The STAR Program is designed to teach children and those involved in their care psychological techniques to improve self-control and prosocial competence. The program employs cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) principles and uses a child-centered approach to teach attention skills, emotional control, problem-solving, and interpersonal skills to children aged 8-12 who have cognitive, behavioral, social or emotional difficulties. The Program includes a manual for healthcare practitioners as well as a workbook for the child. The manual outlines designated group sessions to be delivered by healthcare practitioners alongside individual coaching sessions to be provided by a family member or individual carer between each group meeting. With games, helpful tips and extra space for personal notes and drawings, the workbook is made up of sections for each group session to be completed by the child. It involves individual exercises between meetings and is an essential companion for children participating in the STAR Program. Extra materials include PowerPoint presentations, and a Thinking Tools resource, which are available to download from the JKP website. Use code STA for a 15% discount when you order the manual and workbook together from our website.
