Connect focuses on enhancing the parent’s ability to reflect before acting, by teaching skills that that help parents ‘reframe’ their child’s behaviour.

This is done by working with parents to understand and modulate their own emotional responses to problem behaviour and by practicing and communicating empathy for their child’s experience.
