Nobody’s Perfect Parenting workshops, for parents of children up to 5 years
Nobody’s Perfect Parenting is a free 6 week parenting group offered to parents with children age 5 years and under.
This group provides parents with a safe space to learn and build on their parenting skills while interacting with other parents who have same-aged children.
This group is offered 3 times a year, alternating between North and South Delta. The sessions cover useful information about children’s health, safety, development and behaviour. The program aims to support and encourage confidence in positive parenting and connection for isolated parents.
Child care is provided during these weekly, two hour sessions, usually held on Saturday mornings. Transportation assistance is also provided if necessary.
From Safety to Self-Compassion Group
This group is for self-identified women who are survivors of childhood sexual abuse. The group will create a safe environment for you to give voice to your story and feel validated. You will be encouraged to create your own internal and external safety. The group will cover topics like establishing boundaries, consolidating a sense of self, reflecting on the journey and cultivating a future from here on.
Making connections Group
Deltassist is facilitating a group for self-identified women who have experienced intimate partner violence at some point of their lives. Living with abuse and violence can harm both physical and psychological health. Everyone has a right to a safe and healthy relationship that is free from violence and fear. Individuals will learn about the cycle of abuse, why abuse happens and the impact of abuse both on themselves and their children. They will learn healthier communication skills and self-care techniques. Women who identify as LGBTQ2 are welcome.
Self esteem Group
In this group, participants will learn what self esteem is and how abuse impacts self esteem. They will learn about self assessment tools and about healthier thinking patterns using acceptance paradox. They will identify their own strengths and use these to enhance their self esteem.
Boundaries and assertiveness
Participants will have a deeper understanding for building boundaries, understanding assertiveness, and developing a healthier self worth. Sometimes being a people pleaser seems easier than being assertive. Participants will recognize that they are worth way more than that and create an ability to say ‘no’ when they want to. Participants will learn a healthy style of conducting interpersonal relationships where they don’t have to give up on their own needs and still have respect for others’ needs
Exploring Anger (for self-identified women)
This is a 6 week group for self-identified women who have experienced any kind of relationship abuse. Participants explore how trauma and abuse as well as social context can impact our experiences of anger. We will also practice emotional regulation, CBT, and DBT skills for working with anger.
Anger Management and Healthy Relationships Group
This is a 12-week program for anyone who has difficulty managing their anger, and would like to learn healthy ways of coping and communicating. Individuals learn to deal with stress, develop empathy and respond instead of react.
The program also offers prevention and intervention to perpetrators of violence prior to a charge, conviction or sentencing through the criminal justice process or other.
A certification of completion will be provided upon completion.
