SAS Group Program

Parent_manual_intro_Patrick.indd

The Secret Agent Society Program is for children aged between 8 and 12 who need to improve their social and emotional skills.  SAS captivates children with espionage-themed games and eye-catching resources.  Kids learn how to recognise and manage their own feelings, cope with change, detect other people’s emotions, talk and play with others and deal with bullying.  Parents and schools are an integral part of the group program and receive resources and support to help young ‘secret agents’ develop and practice new skills at home and school.

The program consists of a two-hour introductory parent group meeting followed by nine weekly two-and a half hour sessions and two follow-up sessions.  Each session concludes with the facilitator reviewing program content with parents, and explaining how they can support their child’s social skill usage in everyday life.  Children play the Secret Agent Society computer game between sessions and complete ‘home missions’ with parental guidance. Parents will be given weekly teacher tip sheets to forward to their child’s teacher.
