Group Services:

Group Services
Our Group Services are out-client services that offer educational, treatment and support groups for children, youth and their families.

Our main goal is to help children and youth improve their social functioning skills when at home, in school, and in the community.

Who is eligible for these groups?
To be eligible for our groups,
  • children must be under 18 years of age, and
  • they must live in the Region of Peel.


What do we do?
Our Group Services give children and parents the opportunity to learn from each other. All groups provide information and resources on specific topics.

 

Our child and parent treatment groups run concurrently to allow continuous learning. In each program, children and parents gain the necessary management skills that will help them resolve future everyday challenges.


Children and youth can also benefit from our psycho-educational, life-skills and social-skills groups. Here, clinicians provide information and facilitate group discussion and problem-solving.

 

Educational groups for parents are accompanied by supervised children's activity groups, where children develop social skills in a structured setting with peers.

 

During the summer months we offer a Parenting Workshop Series for parents to learn more about topics related to positive parenting strategies and self-care.


Depending on the nature of the group, participants range from 6 to 25. Groups typically last from 6 to 10 weeks, while workshops are single evening sessions. The following is a list of groups that we currently offer:

 

Educational Groups

  • COPEing with Challenging Behaviour,
  • COPEing with Toddler Behaviour,
  • The Incredible Years,
  • Learning about Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD),
  • Feeling Good about Being You: A Group for Moms, and
