Connect Parent Group -watch for next program start


              An Attachment Based Program to 

           Support Parents & Caregivers


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

Each session provides parents with a new perspective on parent-teen relationships and adolescent development. Parents watch role-plays, do exercises and discuss new ways of responding to challenging behaviour and problems. 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.

Connect groups are led by trained Connect leaders. Your group leaders will work hard to understand the challenges you face and to support you and your relationship with your teen. Parents who participate in Connect tell us they feel respected and supported.Connect is designed for parents of teens just like you. It addresses changes that occur between parents and teens and helps them keep their relationship strong and positive. Connect is for all parents – it helps protect teens as they move forward in their journey to adulthood.

 We really listen to parents and have used their feedback to shape the Connect Program. We make sure we get feedback from parents every time a Connect group is provided.

Connect has been proven to be evidence-based and consistently produces significant improvements across a broad band of outcomes including behaviour problems and parenting satisfaction. Parents uniformly report that the program is extremely helpful: Parents report feeling less stressed and more effective in parenting; they see fewer behaviour problems and better social functioning in their teen. Our work evaluating Connect continues. For more information please see:
