The following Foundational Family Services are provided by Child & Community Resources and our partners through the Northern Collaborative.
Children’s Friendship Training
Children’s Friendship Training is an evidence based interactive program delivered in module sessions in which children and families develop and practice social skills necessary to initiate and maintain meaningful peer relationships. Caregiver’s attend sessions at the same time as their children/youth.
Through ten modules, children will learn to make phone calls, host play-dates, maintain play, share in the interests of others’, and respond appropriately to bullying/teasing. During these sessions caregivers will learn how to support their children in the exciting new world of social opportunities.
Facilitators will complete a pre-screening tool with families expressing an interest in participating.
