COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL STRATEGIES TO REDUCE STRESS DURING COVID 19
(Dr. Marina Heifetz – Clinical Child Psychologist)

Thursday July 9, 2020 2:00 PM — 4:00 PM
Zoom Webinar
This webinar will examine cognitive-behavioural strategies for promoting parent and child
well-being during COVID-19. Cognitive-behavioural approaches are based on evidence-based therapy that help us learn how to cope with difficulties like anxiety by understanding how our feelings, thoughts, and behaviours are related.
Practical tips in identifying emotions and thought patterns will be provided, as well as various relaxation tools. The goal of this webinar is to provide families with foundational skills to stay resilient in the face of stress experienced during COVID-19 and beyond.

PARENTING TRAPS AND STRATEGIES—SMALL CHANGES, BIG DIFFERENCES
(Uma Bhatt – Community Outreach Worker)

Tuesday July 14, 2020 6:30 PM — 8:30 PM
Zoom Webinar
This workshop is informed by the evidence based parenting program Triple P. While
parents hope to have positive relationships with their children, these relationships can
sometimes be difficult to navigate when power struggles and challenging behaviours are
encountered.
Come and learn about how to identify and respond to children in order to avoid power
struggles, and develop strategies that will work for your family.

SIBLING RIVALRY TO SIBLING RELATIONSHIP
(Uma Bhatt – Community Outreach Worker)

Tuesday July 21, 2020 6:30 PM — 8:30 PM
Zoom Webinar
This workshop will discuss what sibling rivalry is, what causes it, and what parents can do to build and strengthen this important relationship.
• Explore the meaning of ‘fairness’ from a child’s perspective, and learn how to handle
each child’s feelings.
• Learn how to respond to challenging behaviours, and how to balance the parental role
of being a ‘coach and a referee’.
• Learn the value of ‘cooling off time’, and teach your children to use ‘quiet spaces’ for
calming and learning to work together with a sibling to problem solve.
• Learn ways to encourage positive and respectful sibling relationships.
• Learn additional ways to cope and manage when one/both siblings have mental health
challenges.
