The Connect Parent Group is a series of workshops in Williams Lake that focuses on enhancing the building blocks of attachment, improving the parents’ ability to reflect before acting, and adjust their feelings so they respond more constructively to conflict.
The series of free 10 one-hour sessions is delivered over 10 weeks.
Parents watch role-plays presented by two facilitators that open new choices for responding to their adolescent’s difficult behaviour.
Parents learn, for example, that conflict is part of attachment and is particularly acute during times, such as the transition through adolescence.
The next Connect Parent Group session runs on Tuesdays from Oct. 8 to Dec. 10 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.
There is no charge but pre-registration is required due to limited space.
Food and refreshments are provided.
