CHILDREN'S EMOTIONAL HEALTH SUPPORT
1-on-1 Support for Children is a form of neutral connection provided to children who are going through something tough. It's like a wrap-around service for children. It includes elements of age appropriate play-based counselling, coping skill development, needs assessment, and connections are made to other community resources, as would he most helpful. We always include the parents in this process, to find the most effective solutions for the children & the whole family.
We use play-based practices that help the child identify, explore and manage their feelings, and it provides the children a safe space to express themselves. It can be helpful for children whose families are separating, who are grieving a loss, are transitioning to kindergarten or are having difficulty in school, who have emotional struggles or behavioural issues, are military families facing a deployment, or are accepting new living arrangements in blended families.
