The resource profiles three different family-based programs – Triple P Positive Parenting Program, The Incredible Years and Strengthening Families – and offers a number of real-world learnings from programs currently being implemented across Ontario.

SEXUAL VIOLENCE AND HARASSMENT: The Ontario government has a Select Committee on Sexual Violence and Harassment that is looking into the prevention of sexual violence and harassment and to improving the response to Ontarians who have experienced sexual violence and harassment. It’s an all-party committee that in addition to holding public hearings in Toronto will be travelling through parts of the province to make sure they hear from as wide a range of perspectives as possible.  Please share with clients who may have an experience to share.  One can appear in person as well as make a written submission.  Here is a LINK to important dates and contact info.
