MASTER Intervention Program

The MASTER Intervention Program is a comprehensivemaster workshop
program for school-aged children who have identified social and emotional needs.

It is informed by evidence-based psychological and communication strategies and provides a comprehensive intervention framework supporting learning of core social and emotional competencies.

This program is appropriate for children aged 5 to 11 years who experience delays in social and emotional development, including children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and high-functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Objectives of the program:

  1. To support the development of core social and emotional competencies in children’s development;
  2. To assist in establishing and maintaining increased skill, effectiveness, and confidence in parenting a child with social and emotional developmental needs; and
  3. To promote collaborative management through parent and teacher psycho-education and child based intervention that is proactive rather than reactive in addressing children’s social and emotional needs.

The distinguishing features of the program:

The authors of the program view social and emotional functioning as multidimensional in nature. Although many interventions focus on specific aspects of social and emotional functioning, such as social skills training or recognition and regulation of emotion, this single element or piecemeal approach fails to capture the complex nature of social and emotional development.

A singular intervention focus does not consider the pervading interactions among the different dimensions of social and emotional functioning for children with complex needs. The M.A.ST.E.R™ Intervention Program reflects the emphasis that functionality in one area of social and emotional functioning depends, in large part, on the changes that are taking place in other social and emotional domains. The recursive integration and interdependence amongst the different social and emotional dimensions is a central theme in this program.

The program is currently being manualised for training purposes. Please subscribe below to keep up to date with our progress.
