Wherever Rock and Water is taught, boys and girls become more confident, protective and able to express themselves in a crisis. Bullying and assaults are significantly reduced. The program teaches them to actively prevent violence, deal with conflict and how to intervene appropriately to protect others from bullying.

I wholly support and endorse the Rock and Water program as a powerful tool for developing self awareness, resilience and emotional well being in our children and adolescents today.

I have run the program in so many varied ways it is incredible from a universal approach with whole classes to targeted small groups of students with high needs.

The training was hugely beneficial both as personal staff development as well as for teaching strategies. All staff received it very well and came away with a wealth of ideas to implement straight away into their classroom. Pupils have engaged very positively in the lessons and are so enthusiastic about it.
Carol Irvine - Headteacher, Aberdeenshire Scotland
The inspirational program Rock and Water has made a considerable difference to our school climate. A number of my teachers attended the training and we have applied the techniques to solve some significant issues we had with ‘difficult boys’. I highly commend this training which targets not only anger and dealing with difficult and complex issues but also emotional intelligence and self esteem in boys. Fantastic!
