Family Support Counselling - Castlegar

Family Counsellors and a Family Support worker offer the following:

  • Family Advancement: supporting families in gaining new skills, such as communication skills and conflict resolution so as to assist in effectively addressing issues occurring within the family system including child behavioral issues, differing parental styles, and/or co-parenting.
  • Skill acquisition to support utilization of newly learned skills by families, teens, and parents in order to effectively work on their identified issues. These skills may include learning new communication styles, creating an understanding of co-parenting within divorce situations, and awareness of techniques to try while working with children who display difficult behaviors.
  • Parent-teen mediation: supporting parents and their teens in communicating their needs to one another. Through mediation, parents and teens can begin to have a platform to express their issues in a safe, non-judgmental manner and enhance their communication within their family system.
