What is Connect?

Connect is a 10 week program to support parents and caregivers of pre-teens and teens with behavioural and emotional concerns. Parents meet in small groups with two trained group leaders for one hour each week.

Each session provides parents with a new perspective on parent-teen relationships and adolescent development. Parents watch role-plays, try exercises and work together to develop new choices for responding to their teen’s difficult behavior. Parents receive handouts following each session with key points to remember.

We understand that each child and each parent is different and change is part of development. Rather than teach only one way of parenting, we help parents see choices that support healthy relationships while setting limits and helping their teen to move forward.
