Skills Transfer Program

Transferable skills, also called life skills, are abilities and skills that can be learned in one context and transferred to other domains of life. Learning and transferring life skills can be viewed as an interconnected and developmental process. Childhood and adolescence are critical developmental periods of rapid growth (Moral, Physical, psychosocial) which strongly influences trajectories towards behavioural health and wellbeing. Children, teenagers and young adults are the most at-risk and vulnerable groups to developing Behavioural Health Problems (BHP). Behavioural health problems are the attitudes and/or actions that compromise youths’ physical, moral, psychological, emotional, and social well-being. Various risk factors, stressors and lack of protective factors within individual, family, environmental, and social domains contribute to the onset of and exacerbation of behavioural health problems. Some of these behavioural health issues include poor intra/interpersonal interactions, self-image/esteem, boundaries, self-regulation/control, peer influence and risky behaviours like self-inflicted injury, sexual, substance and or alcohol. Protecting our children and youth requires responding with continuous opportunities for developing and building life skills. These skills allow them to use adaptable, positive and healthy coping responses. CBT-Kenya’s Skills Transfer Program (STP) offers a safe opportunity for parents and their teenagers to acquire valuable life skills and learn how to translate them to various areas of their lives. This program is a supportive and strength-based initiative to build youths' capacity to adapt successfully in the presence of stressors, risk and adversity. This program targets youths from puberty to young adults in need of life skills training and learning.
