Collaborative Problem Solving
This program is offered to parents of children that are referred to Teen Anger Management. The goal of the program is to inform, educate and raise awareness of the effects of a child’s lagging skills that may contribute to explosive outbursts. Role of the counsellor is to teach coping skills, i.e. Anger Management or Cognitive Flexibility skills to youth, and educate parent/guardian in the use of empathy, defining the problem and inviting the child to problem-solve together. Once the program is implemented, the Counsellor remains as support to the family until conflict is resolved. Referrals for the program are from Children’s Aid Society, Family Doctors, Youth Justice and Family Inquiries.
Managing Teen Anger and Violence
This program is for teens that are willing to take responsibility for negative behaviour, admit they have harmed others, property or self, agree to stop the harmful behaviour, agree to forgive those that may have harmed them and to apologize or make restitution whenever possible to those they may have harmed. The program is a fifteen-week program, with possible continued support following the fifteen weeks. The program is for teens, thirteen to eighteen years. Candidates for the program are decided at the time of intake for the Teen Anger Management. Referrals are from Children’s Aid Society, Youth Justice and Family Inquiries.
