1:00-2:30 p.m.

The webinar will be facilitated/presented in French with simultaneous interpretation available in English.

This webinar will be an opportunity to discuss the collection of tip sheets prepared by and in collaboration with NP stakeholders in Quebec. These seven tip sheets are tools to assist facilitators with their facilitation role and help them manage specific situations in such a way that the development and skills of all participating parents are fostered and supported. The tip sheets deal with the following topics: the role of fathers; dealing with overbearing and non-speaking participants in a group setting; single-parent families; crises that can arise during group workshops; participants with mental health issues; immigrant families; and language barriers. The tip sheets are available in English and French.

Presenters: Guylaine Beaumier, Lucie Roch, Chantal Simoneau, and Amélie Trépanier
