Resilience Education for teens


SCORE - Self-Compassion Oriented Resilience Education for teens

The SCORE program was originally designed at Simon Fraser University under the name SCORB. It is now being offered in the Surrey area for high school students between 15 and 18 years old. Designed by Dr. Megan Pinfield PhD, this program teaches students how to develop self-compassion, intellectual risk taking and resilience skills so they can manage difficulties and challenges in life and school. 

SCORE is evidence based.  Outcome research has shown that students that complete all 10 modules of the program improve their ability to show themselves compassion, share their ideas in the classroom, engage with peers and teachers, and handle their mistakes and failures. 

Intellectual risk taking is an important skill for university bound students. Students who can actively participate in their classrooms without fear  of making mistakes or appearing foolish, do better in life and in university. They get more out of their learning environments and enjoy their classes more. Students who are engaged and active learners are less likely to drop out of university early.

Human beings learn best from trial and error. It's natural. Students who can accept and tolerate trying new skills are better equipped to manage life. SCORE can help!!

SCORE has 10 separate Modules/Classes

Each module is 2 hours of class time where students will learn that day's topic and actively participate in exercises and activities that teach the core skills. Modules are designed to be in a classroom setting and not traditional group therapy.
