Parents for Children's Mental Health: Durham Region

Ann will be speaking about Parenting Through the Storm. Presentation description: “Having a child who is struggling doesn’t make you a bad parent, just as being a child who is struggling doesn’t make your child a bad kid.” That’s a powerful and reassuring message to hear if you happen to be the parent of a child who is struggling with anxiety, depression, ADHD, an autism spectrum disorder, or a related challenge.

ECE Retreat in Kelowna, BC: "Calm, Caring, and Connected"

Ann Douglas will be presenting two workshops — The Umbrella Workshop: Helping Families to Weather the Storm and Let’s Start a Self-Care Revolution at this conference for early childhood educators.

Conference description: The ECE Retreat Kelowna: Calm, Caring & Connected is being held March 9, 2019 at Reid Hall which is located at 2279 Benvoulin Rd. in Kelowna, British Columbia. The event will be held between 9:15 AM and 4:30 PM. All who register, attend and participate in the full ECE Retreat will receive a 6 hour professional development certificate. The theme of this ECE Retreat is “Calm, Caring & Connected.” Child care in BC has been undergoing a significant amount of change over the last year. While it has been an exciting time on many levels — the reality is that it has also been a stressful time for educators, operators and families. Throughout the Calm, Caring & Connected theme of this ECE Retreat, we will explore a number of areas designed to address the concepts related to caring for yourself, caring for others and caring for the important work that we do in the field of early learning and child care. This ECE Retreat will include a combination of masterminds, workshop presentations and engaging “wisdom from the room” discussions. We have brought together a group of fantastic presenters that we believe the early childhood education community/child care will benefit greatly from interacting with. Full registration details here.

Ann Douglas will be speaking on “Happy Parents Raising Happy Kids: A Call to Action for Communities” — a community conversation hosted by psychologist and author Dr. Vanessa Lapointe.

Event details:

For children to grow in the best possible way, they need to exist in an environment that works for them. That environment is created primarily by parents. This means that parents need to be at their best in order for kids to get what they need. As it turns out “the village” has a significant role to play in ensuring this is the case. At this special community event, celebrated parenting educator Ann Douglas and Registered Psychologist Dr. Vanessa Lapointe present a personal and up-front perspective of the role of community in the raising of children. Drawing from key areas of research and Ann’s work for her latest book where she interviewed dozens of Canadian parents, a path forward will be presented, with solutions that can be tackled at the individual, family, and community level.

She also hosts online conversations about parenting and mental health (for Understood.org's highly popular #LDchat and Children's Mental Health Ontario #kidscantwait mental health advocacy campaign). Ann is an active volunteer and frequent commentator on all things parenting. She has received awards for both her writing and her volunteer work.

•    Why so many parents are struggling with feelings of anxiety, guilt, and overwhelm—and how this affects both their health and their parenting
•    How the health of parents affects the health of kids—and vice versa—and what this means for families who are struggling with challenges both big and small
•    Seven things the parent of a child who is struggling really needs to hear—and how to deliver these all-important messages in an empowering and guilt-free way
•    Proven strategies for overcoming the biggest barriers to parent engagement, including parent anxiety and fear
