Postive Parenting Workshop

The Keewaywin Health Services presented a parenting workshop at the Keewaywin Community Hall. Jennifer Dererosier, Parental Support Worker facilitated the workshop  and Jerry Wesley Community Wellness Facilitator did a community needs assessment. Both are from the Equa-wuk Women's Program in Sioux Lookout, ON.

Lawrence Mason, Mental Health worker for the Keewaywin Health Services presented a session on the issue of  Bullying.

Although there were  a variety of issues presented the focus was on awareness and encouragement for parents to develop postive parenting skills. In all there were seven participants who all enjoyed and appreciated  the well presented facts and information.

Snacks and refreshments were served each day of the workshop.

Many thanks go to the Equa-wuk and the participants.
