Overview

A multi-component program for children aged 6-12 years who exhibit early adjustment difficulties (i.e., aggressive behaviour). The target of the program is to provide early intervention to mitigate later risky behaviours such as substance abuse.

The program is delivered over several weeks and facilitated by trained professionals. Program options are available to parents and children during the summer and school year. For children, activities aim to enrich academic and social development and improve emotional competence and behavioral adjustment. For parents, education and skill training are offered to support effective parenting.

Results and outcomes of interventions have demonstrated improved academic, social, and emotional functioning in children; and less personal distress for parents.
