NOW & NEXT is a 4-day programme to help parents, whānau and carers develop skills to achieve positive outcomes for their child, family and self.
Now and Next has been developed by Sylvana Mahmic (CEO, Plumtree, Sydney Australia) and Dr Annick Janson (Clinical Psychologist and Positive Psychology Researcher, Raglan, New Zealand) and both are parents of young men who have a disability. 
They developed this programme because they learnt that a positive vision and a focus on strengths is the best foundation for a child and family’s future. The programme is delivered in 4 -day sessions (9:00am – 3:00pm) held over a 6-week period.

Through fun and engaging activities, you will:

  • identify a vision and write goals for your child, family and self;
  • learn how to use our ‘goal to action’ tool to achieve 3 goals during the program;
  • reflect on your child, personal and family strengths using the Now and Next Mindfulness colouring in book;
  • identify your signature strengths and how to use them to achieve your goals;
  • learn how to create positive and effective relationships with professionals;02041639455
  • learn how to improve your child, family and personal well-being
