About the Behaviour Program
Confident Parents: Thriving Kids Behaviour Program is grounded in the Parent Management Training – Oregon Model developed by Implementation Sciences International Inc. Through a series of 6 to 14 weekly coaching sessions, along with exercises and workbooks, trained coaches empower parents and caregivers to learn effective skills and techniques that support social skills and cooperation in their child. These techniques are proven to prevent, reduce and reverse the development of mild to moderate behaviour problems. The program is offered in partnership with Implementation Sciences International Inc. with funding provided by the Province of British Columbia.
About the Anxiety Program
Launched in Spring 2019, Confident Parents: Thriving Kids – Anxiety Program is a ‘made in BC model’ based on the best available evidence for supporting families to effectively reduce mild to moderate anxiety in their children. Delivered through videos and supported by scheduled telephone coaching sessions, the approach focuses on building skills and strategies that parents can use with their child and family at home and in community settings. The program was developed in collaboration with BC experts who work extensively with children experiencing anxiety and their families, incorporating key concepts from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Funding is provided by the Province of British Columbia.
