In Honour of Mental Health Awareness Week and as Part of our Parent Workshop Series, TPYS Presents:
Parenting Oppositional Youth
Presented by: Dr. Donna MacLachlan, Child Psychiatrist
Wednesday, May 8, 2013, 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
It can be difficult at times to distinguish between the typical “push back” of adolescence and when the struggles may be signs of something more troubling. Dr. MacLachlan will focus on the characteristics of Oppositional Defiant Disorder, the dynamic between teens and parents that reinforce oppositional behaviours and how to disengage from this dynamic. Questions and input from parents/guardians will be welcome.
To reserve a spot or for more information, please contact Intake at 416-925-9250 x 224.
All parent workshops are free of charge and held at Turning Point Youth Services, 95 Wellesley St. East (5 minutes East of Wellesley Station).
