About This Workshop

The Best of Friends® (BoF) is a social and emotional learning workshop that empowers children aged 5 to 12 with the knowledge, skills and confidence to understand and manage emotions and social situations.  

Developed by Educational and Developmental psychologist Dr Kimberley O’Brien, The Best of Friends® program draws on years of clinical and school-based experience and research to help students build their social and emotional skills.

Combining cutting-edge research and interactive activities, this three-hour workshop teaches children all the basic skills they need to thrive at home, school and beyond.

What we cover

This activity-based workshop encourages children to make the most of their friendships by developing good communication and social skills. Participants learn how to form and develop good friendships, hold two-way conversations, and manage or avoid conflict with their peers.

The brief workshop version of The Best of Friends® program includes a concise and interactive set of engaging activities designed to facilitate social and emotional learning (SEL). Activities include role-playing, games, crafts and dialogue. We cover areas such as:

  • Making friends
  • Social expectations
  • The importance of compromise
  • Empathy in friendship
  • Peacemaking

This is a small, multi-age, mixed gender groups with a maximum of four to six participants.

Each workshop is evaluated to ensure it meets our strict learning outcomes. Current parent evaluations indicate that around 72% of children attending the workshop improved their overall social skills while 89% of parents identified at least one to three areas of improvement (n = 147).
