NZ Centre of Kidpower International

Safe learning experiences for adults and young people to take positive effective action to avoid or stop bullying, abuse and violence. Skill building, hands-on, positive practices act as a catalyst for change. The Kidpower approach increases protective factors and reduces risk factors for potential victims AND perpetrators of all types of violence (including sexual violence) by providing strategies, awareness, and skills to prevent potentially violent situations from escalating and getting out of control, build healthy relationships, and navigate conflict without aggression.

Some great courses are available and some are free. The courses are delivered via training, workshops and webinars. Course titles include ‘Fullpower Healthy Relationships for Teens and Adults with Intellectual Disabilities’, ‘Protecting Kids from Sexual Abuse Without Scaring Them’, and ‘Fullpower for Seniors’. There’s loads of potentially life-changing info on their website: topics include ‘De-escalation’, ‘Safe, Healthy & Respectful Relationships’ and so much more. Check out the dates and times of current courses on the training tab to learn more.
