At THE LILY PAD, we provide fun, outdoor experiences that are facilitated by trained professionals in mental health and education, and promote personal development in the areas of resiliency and social skills.   Research has shown that these skills are crucial to the development of emotionally intelligent individuals who are able to effectively manage themselves and positively contribute to the world around them.

What is it the Resilience Program?

Our Resilience Program is an active, adventure based program, which encourages self-esteem, resilience and well being in children and adolescents using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) approaches.

What is CBT?

Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is a time-sensitive, structured,  psychotherapy directed toward solving current problems and teaching clients skills to improve thinking and behavior.

What is Resilience?

Psychological resilience is defined as an individual’s ability to properly adapt to stress and adversity – or simply put “bounce back” from difficult experiences.   The American Psychological Association further describes, “Resilience is not a trait that people either have or do not have. It involves behaviors, thoughts and actions that can be learned and developed in anyone”.

How can we measure Resilience?

Resilience can be measured in many different ways.

At the Lily Pad, we will assess the individual strengths of each participant using the Resiliency Scales for Children & Adolescents™ which measures the personal attributes of the child that are critical for resiliency, as well as the Social Skills Rating System, which assesses social behaviors.  We will provide a summary of each participants profile at the end of the program.
