The Centre offers a number of goal-focused counselling and early intervention groups designed to meet a range of needs for parents and children. In addition to the specific group’s goals, children’s groups aim to improve children’s understanding of themselves and others, and improve their social interaction skills in a group setting. Adult group services aim to improve parents’ understanding of themselves and their children; build parenting skills; develop supportive relationships and networks; and reduce stress and isolation.
Groups take place at the Centre or at various community locations. Some groups are run in collaboration with other community service providers.
Feedback is provided to parents at the end of all groups. The Centre also welcomes feedback from participants about their group experience so that future groups can be adapted to meet families’ needs.
