We believe that family, however it is defined, is the basic social unit of society, and that healthy families build healthy communities.

The S.T.E.P. (Systematic Training in Effective Parenting) method is rooted in Adlerian psychology and was developed in the 1950s by Rudolph Dreikurs. The main tenets are mutual respect, encouragement and positive discipline and the workshops provide parents with practical tools to help raise capable children.

  • Learn why the ‘good parent’ and the ‘good child’ are myths.
  • Understand the purpose of behaviours such as temper tantrums and defiance.
  • Develop effective parenting patterns.
  • Reduce family conflict.
  • Discover effective strategies and tools.
  • Learn how to encourage children to take responsibility, feel capable, and be respectful.
  • Learn, explore, and share in a supportive and relaxed atmosphere.

The 8 weekly workshop dates will be held online via Zoom on Wednesdays, 6:00pm - 8:00pm PST:

- September 27

- October 4, 11 18, 25

- November 1, 8, 15

To receive a Certificate of Completion, attendance to all 8 workshop dates is mandatory unless previously discussed with the facilitator.
