Meeting Everyday Family/Classroom Challenges is a course geared to parents, childcare givers and teachers. These challenges may range from understanding and re-directing goals of misbehaviour, dealing with power struggles, staying out of sibling rivalry, handling mealtime and bedtime battles and more. This course will use listening and encouragement as powerful tools in order to improve behaviour and create a spirit of co-operation in both family and school.

Anger Management is a course being introduced for the first time at the summer school. Like all emotions anger is healthy and natural but can be harmful if dumped on others. This course will look at our emotions and how we manage them. Part of this course is seeing that emotions have a physical presence in the body and that they won’t go away just because we want them to. We will learn about the vengeance cycle and how to break it. We will raise personal awareness around the issue of anger, with discussion and exploration. A big plus is that we have received accreditation from the International Coaching Federation for this course. On completion of the course coaches will qualify for 10.5 units from the Federation.
