Designed to reach young children under the age of eight years, RIRO skills training works by laying a strong foundation of thinking and coping skills that support resilience in the adults who care for and work with them. RIRO teaches “3Rs of Resilience“– skills to help Relax, Reflect and Respond effectively to life’s challenges.[1]RIRO Skills Training Program is based on The Resilience Factor (Karen Reivich and Andrew Shatté) and the Penn Resilience Program (an acclaimed resiliency promotion and depression prevention program for school–age children) and has been adapted for young children from birth to seven years of age.

The resiliency skills help adults and children develop several critical abilities associated with resilience:

  • being in charge of our emotions
  • controlling our impulses
  • analyzing the cause of problems
  • empathizing with others
  • believing in our competence
  • maintaining realistic optimism
  • reaching out to others and opportunities.

RIRO Resiliency Skills Training gives service providers skills and theory to support a relationship-based reflective practice and provides a framework for creating a “culture of resilience” in programs serving young children.
