Welcome TO STEP-UPP®
The original DBT skills based programme
STEP-UPP® is a comprehensive program designed to foster the development of essential emotional management, interpersonal, and decision-making skills. Adolescents often confront a multitude of social, developmental, and academic pressures, ranging from peer rejection and low self-confidence to self-identity confusion, impulsive behavior, substance abuse, and challenges related to intimacy and sexual relationships. With a specific focus on young adults in Grades 8 to 12, the program provides a supportive group environment to address these issues effectively.
The Tweens Programme is catered to children aged 8 to 12 years old. This program aims to empower tweens by equipping them with their own set of behavioural strategies, which we refer to as “life development skills.” These skills serve as valuable tools that adolescents and teens can utilize throughout their lives, enabling them to overcome challenges such as completing their education, pursuing higher studies at university, maintaining meaningful relationships, and securing important employment opportunities.
By participating in STEP-UPP®, adolescents and tweens have the opportunity to acquire and practice these vital life skills before making decisions that may carry long-term consequences. Our ultimate goal is to provide them with the tools and strategies necessary to effectively manage difficult emotional situations and make informed decisions when they find themselves in distress. Together, we strive to empower the next generation with the confidence and resilience needed to navigate life’s challenges successfully.
