Join us for a FREE Social and Emotional Learning Program for Kids and their Parents!

June 09, 2020

Friends Online will be offered this Summer!

Developed initially as an in-school program, the CanLearn Friends program was for children in grades 4-6 to support them in managing their emotions, strengthening their relationships, and improving their behaviour.

In response to the COVID-19 crisis and with school cancelled, we wanted to find a way to continue to work with kids on these essential skills while they’re at home.

We are excited to announce that we are offering the CanLearn Friends program online in a one-on-one setting!

Children and their parents will be provided with an engaging and individualized learning experience and will learn and practice skills related to:

  • Coping with anxiety and worry
  • Managing their emotions
  • Communicating well with others
  • Thinking positively
  • Being a good problem solver
  • Dealing with cyberbullying and online safety
  • Relaxation and mindfulness
  • Self-confidence
  • Adjusting to learning from home
  • Supporting positive behaviours

This is also an opportunity for parents to receive support and to learn strategies to help their children during this challenging time. A maximum of 8 one-hour sessions will be offered to each family (weekly or bi-weekly).

There are a limited number of spots for this program, and we are offering this on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Location: Telehealth video-conferencing. Participants must have a computer with a camera and a microphone to access the sessions.

Cost: FREE

Dates and Times: July – August 2020

To register, give us a call at 403-686-9300 ext. 102. If you would like to find out more about CanLearn Friends, contact Jaime Gaber by email.

CanLearn Friends is a FREE program made possible through a partnership between the CanLearn Society and FCSS (Family and Community Support Service, City of Calgary). The CanLearn Friends program was developed by CanLearn Society psychologists and is facilitated by qualified personnel from CanLearn Society.
