Connect is a 10-week program for parents and caregivers of pre-teens and teens. For 1.5 hours each week, parents and caregivers meet in small groups (10-16) with two trained group facilitators.

Facilitators present role-plays and offer reflective discussion.  We discuss new ways of responding to challenging behaviours and intense emotions. After each session, caregivers receive handouts with key points to remember.
