Confident Parents: Thriving Kids is a family-focused phone-based coaching service effective in reducing mild to moderate behavioural problems and promoting healthy child development in children ages 3-12.
Through a series of 6 to 14 weekly coaching sessions, along with exercises and workbooks, trained coaches empower parents and/or 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 that create challenges at home, school and in social settings.
Confident Parents: Thriving Kids is offered at no cost to BC families, and coaches are available to speak with parents during day, evening and weekend hours to meet each family’s needs.
If you are interested in Confident Parents: Thriving Kids, please talk to your family doctor or pediatrician to request a referral.
The program was featured in the Fall 2015 edition of the Children’s Mental Health Research Quarterly. CMHA BC is proud to be the recipient of the 2017 BC Health Care Awards Gold Apple for Top Innovation Affiliate for Confident Parents: Thriving Kids.
Confident Parents: Thriving Kids program is grounded in the Parent Management Training – Oregon Model developed by Implementation Sciences International Inc.
