Posha's Pawsome Superpower Toolbox
A Fun, Interactive, Playful Way to Build Self-Esteem in Children.
Thinking Pawsitively-Posha's Pawsome Superpower Toolkit
Welcome to Posha's Think Pawsitive Workshops, where we are devoted to enhancing children's mental health and self-esteem. We employ a blend of Cognitive Psychology, Posha's "What Kind of Dog Am I" book, and Virginia Satir's self-esteem toolkit to empower young minds.
Through our engaging toolbox, we assist educators, parents, and counselors in challenging negative thinking and fostering self-confidence.
Our workshops, rooted in the Three Cs of Cognitive Psychology, help children recognize and manage thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, promoting emotional intelligence, positive thinking, a growth mindset, and resilience.
Posha's book guides kids through identity, emotions, and relationships, while Virginia Satir's toolkit aids in challenging negative thinking, building self-confidence, self-worth, and resilience.
At Posha's Think Pawsitive, we are committed to equipping children with resilience, emotional intelligence, and a strong self-image to promote their mental health and self-esteem. Join our workshops today for a holistic approach to support your child's well-being.
Contact us to learn more about the workshops and how to schedule one.
