Calm Kids, Happy Families

This is a six week group for families with children, ages 8 – 11, who have attention, learning and/or social challenges. No formal diagnosis is required to participate in this group.


Child Sessions

Through fun and engaging activities, and thoughtful discussions, children will learn and practice the following skills:

  • Managing strong emotions
  • Making and keeping friends
  • Handling peer conflict and bullying
  • Problem solving skills
  • Challenging negative thinking
  • Communication and assertiveness
  • Coping skills


Parent Sessions

Parent involvement is critical for children’s social and emotional development. Each week, parents will participate in their own sessions where they can learn strategies to help their children in every day life. There will also be opportunity for parents to support each other through discussion of personal experiences.

This will be a small group setting, to allow for individualized intervention and support to parents.
