What is the Skills Workshop?

Parenting a child or youth with intense emotions or acting out behaviours is difficult. Parents of children with mental health struggles can often feel stuck, frustrated or blamed for their child’s difficulties. This workshop is designed to help parents and other caregivers learn skills to better support and coach their children through difficult emotions and behaviours. Learning these skills can help parents better understand their child’s difficulties and feel more confident in their parenting.

When is the Skills Workshop offered?

This is a half day workshop and runs from 12:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at Sageview Health.

Our next workshop is being held on Monday August 12, 2019.
