Alberta Children's Hospital: Community Education Service, Child and Adolescent Mental Health, Calgary, Alberta. Parenting Through the Storm (workshop). 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 latest book, Parenting Through the Storm: How to Handle The Highs, The Lows, and Everything In-Between, which was just published by HarperCollins Canada in January.
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 — and Happy Parents, Happy Kids — a guide to thriving alongside your child (coming in February 2019).
