Strength in the Storm: Coping strategies for parents who have a child who is struggling with a mental, neurodevelopmental, or behavioural challenge. Topics to be discussed include self-care, self-compassion, creating your own support network, and lifestyle matters (nutrition, fitness, sleep, stress management, and making time for fun). This presentation is based on interviews with more than 50 parents who have walked this walk and who are eager to share their best advice with other parents. These interviews formed the basis for Ann’s brand new book Parenting Through the Storm: How to Handle The Highs, The Lows, and Everything In-Between (HarperCollins Canada, January 2015). Part of the Hincks Dellcrest Centre SOS ("Strength, Optimism, Strategies") Parenting Workshop Series. Find out more about this event and how to purchase tickets.
A calendar of upcoming events featuring Ann Douglas, author of Parenting Through the Storm -- a guide to parenting a child with a mental health, neurodevelopmental, or behavioural challenge.
