Confidence Building For Children Workshop

Confident children are more willing learners and achievers, prepared to take on bigger challenges and to push themselves in exciting new directions. They are also happier in themselves and more resilient when experiencing setbacks. In short our confidence building for children workshops can help individuals become assertive; confident students are a credit to themselves and their schools.

Unfortunately, many children lack the social and family support from where much natural confidence comes from, while others find their confidence eroded by negative experiences at school or in the community, or find themselves caught between wanting to fit in with peers and being true to themselves.

Now your school or institution can give the gift of confidence to young people through a 2020 Dreams Confidence Building workshop. Confidence building for children is all about getting them to know themselves and helping them to overcome their fears and inhibitions. We achieve this by employing powerful and proven techniques, such as dramatic role-plays and facilitated open forum discussions.

Self-Knowledge and Confidence

So what is real confidence, and how can our children access it?

Confidence building for children partly involves dismantling their preconceptions about what confidence is and focusing their attention on getting to know themselves. Young people (and sometimes older people too) mistake exaggerated outward displays of behaviour as signs of confidence. This is a mistake since no-one can really tell what feelings lie behind external behaviour and some of the most insecure people of all hide behind extravagant personas.

Mental Health Workshops Was Captivating!

The students were completely captivated by the Mental Health workshops; they were designed to engage the student start to finish and did so perfectly. Each workshop provided real-life examples of how current issues could affect young people such as themselves, and how best to approach the issues if they do.

2020 Dreams Confidence Building workshops help young people to look within themselves to get to know their own skills and attributes as well as becoming aware of the mindset they bring to the world. Through our course students will learn that they do not need to compare themselves with others or to spend all of their time trying to please them. Confidence in itself is attractive which is why people who are ‘comfortable in their own skin,’ seem to thrive in life.

From Fear to Courage

Another big part of confidence building for children involves helping them to overcome their fears and inhibitions and take on new challenges. 2020 Dreams Confidence Building workshops support students as they gently extend their comfort zones and learn that real courage means acting despite anxiety.
Our confidence building for children programme also teaches the value of goal setting and of breaking big challenges down into smaller steps. As young people accomplish their minor goals their confidence grows and they start to realise that anything is possible.

It is important to note that 2020 Dreams Confidence Building workshops are not purely academic exercises. Students will participate in numerous interactive activities that actually equip them with the real skills they need to start off on their own rewarding journey of self-discovery and growing confidence.

The Power of Drama

Some of the most powerful tools in the 2020 Dreams toolkit are the skills-based role-play exercises which are ideal for children to loosen up and start expressing their emotions, allowing their inner confidence to begin to shine through. By playing with elements such as body language, tone of voice and language, children learn to become comfortable acting as confident people which, ironically, is the key to unlocking their real confident selves.

2020 Dreams confidence building for children activities also include facilitated open forum discussion, another way of helping students to explore their own ideas about confidence and discover their true voice.
