We are excited to develop an online learning platform where we can offer a self-paced option for caregivers. Modules will be paired with a clinician meeting to review collaboration and take-home exercises.
TIPES will also soon provide caregiver training adapted from Dr. Evelyn Gould’s six-week “Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) parenting protocol,” which promotes flexible, creative, and adaptive parenting strategies associated with lower levels of child problem behaviour. This short-term training package is delivered in a similar format, with caregiver/clinician collaboration and take-home exercises. Here, the goal is to aid in increasing self-compassion, engagement of values-directed behaviours, and promote positive inter-family relationships.
