* Breaking down barriers in making friends and socializing
* Conflict resolution strategies

* Engaged listening and problem-solving skills
* Recognizing and managing emotions
* Enhancing self-esteem, assertiveness and confidence

In addition to these important skills, it provides you with a unique opportunity to connect with your child and learn more about their thoughts and feelings.
The program is play- and CBT-based (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and is facilitated by a child and family counsellor with expertise in social-emotional development. It is designed to assist children with a variety of challenges including difficulty with peers, anxiety and impulsiveness.
