Calm Kids, Happy Families - Now Online!

Do you have a child who...

  • Has a hard time managing their emotions or calming down when angry?
  • Do you ever find yourself wondering how you can help?

We can help!

 

This program is designed for parents and can help any child experiencing social problems, behavioural challenges, anxiety, depression, as well as those with attention deficit disorders or who are on the autism spectrum. Helping families manage their social and emotional well-being is an important part of what we do.

Parents will have an opportunity to learn skills and strategies to:

  • Help children manage their emotions
  • Encourage positive behaviour
  • Develop conversation skills
  • Reduce stress and improve your relationship with your child
  • Understand how to maintain consistent routines and structure
  • Use positive reinforcement
  • Help your child navigate their digital world
  • And much more!

 

Parents will learn tips for building and strengthening relationships with their children and other family members. Weekly activity suggestions to reinforce concepts will be provided.

This will be an exciting opportunity for parents to grow, learn and connect with other parents!
 

For Fall 2020, the paid Calm Kids program will provide 2 FREE sessions with a Masters or Ph.D. Student Intern (1-hour each), which includes cognitive-behavioural consultation and follow-up intervention.
