Understanding Adolescents

This group will include everyday scenarios that represent a cross-section of parental struggles with teen-age youth as well as understanding the viewpoint as seen by the teen.  Topics covered include:

  • Understanding adolescent development (their needs and wants)
  • Typical conflicts at home and creative solutions
  • School behaviour and achievement ( or lack thereof )
  • Choices and consequences ( and survival )

ACOA Pre-Treatment ( an excellent workshop for EAP reps)

This workshop is designed to help participants understand family of origin issues and how these issues relate to choices in relationships, erroneous thinking and difficulties in the workplace.

For EAP reps it is an opportunity to view terminology and treatment issues necessary for the client in order to cope and/or change, particularly when employees struggle with life transitions directly associated with past family of origin decisions.

We will look at theory, case examples and practical suggestions and various methods of interaction.  Participants will leave with a knowledge of help available and how to integrate this new understanding towards current life contexts.

Parenting the ADHD Child

Attention Deficit not only brings frustration and challenges to the child experiencing ADHD but is also disruptive to the entire family.  Non-ADHD siblings feel the effect and parents out of frustration find the relationship to each other gets stressed.

We will be offering an interactive workshop including guest speakers as we cover a variety of topics relevant to parenting the ADHD child.  Included among the many topics to be discussed will be: a look at medication and alternatives, diet and its affects, behavioral concerns, school advocacy, and communication skills in the home.

As a follow up to the workshops, support groups will be offered to help parents to further develop skills required to understand, discipline and encourage the ADHD child.
