Bounce boosting wellbeing in the NT


The first quarter of 2023 has been jam-packed!  

Maria and Amanda are leading an exciting new partnership project in the Northern Territory with the amazing teams from Rise Ventures in Katherine and Nyirrunggulung-Rise. 

RISE Ventures and Nyirrunggulung-Rise are delivering the Federal Government’s Community Development Program (CDP) in Katherine and the communities of Beswick, Barunga, Manyallalak, Binjari and Bulman.  

Bounce is working with these two organisations to co-design a wellbeing program using our renowned Train-the-Trainer approach.  

The training program called Rise – A Way to Wellbeing will be run by local facilitators trained to deliver the content. Participants that go through the programs will develop the foundational psychological work readiness skills they need to feel more confident, resilient, and motivated.  

The programs also incorporate the seven domains of social & emotional wellbeing as outlined in the National Strategic Framework for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples’ Mental Health and Social and Emotional Wellbeing 2017-2023.  

By working with elders, local coordinators and facilitators, the project focuses on finding meaningful and sustainable ways to connect participants to body, mind & emotions, family, community, culture, country and, spirituality & ancestors to boost wellbeing.    

Engage your most disengaged clients with Bounce!

Imagine if you could increase a job seeker’s self-esteem by 170%!

How good would it be if you could help all your clients feel positive and engaged in their employment journey?

What if you run an evidence-based, Government recognised best-practice training program in your workplace with your very own trainer?

The Bounce Program can help with that! As an employment provider or not-for-profit organisation that supports people looking for work, you can licence the Bounce Program for yourself and deliver it whenever and wherever you choose.

Have one of your staff trained to deliver the program in your workplace, with one or five or 20 clients – however it works best for you! All the tools and resources are provided, and you can use it as an early intervention and engagement strategy.

Research suggests that training that considers the breadth of soft skills (including psychological work readiness) can help disadvantaged job seekers with complex barriers build the confidence, resilience and motivation they need to become more job ready.

Let’s talk about cognitive load!

The first few months of this year are pretty hectic for me, with a lot of travel and working with new organisations on various projects. I’m also getting very close to the completion of my Master’s Degree in Positive Psychology, so I need to be dedicated to prioritising tasks and activities so that I can stay on top of my to-do list. With all that’s going on, it’s understandable that my cognitive load – or the amount of information my working memory can hold at one time, might be a bit overloaded. So how can you best manage cognitive load?

Here are my tips:

  • Create routines and habits – set timers or reminders to manage your time effectively.
  • Allow enough time to digest new information and reflect or review.
  • Be clear on the purpose – know what the goal or outcome of the task you’re doing is.
  • Breathe, breathe, breathe! Manage your emotions by practising deep breathing to stay on top of stress and anxiety.
