This workshop will help parents understand some of the biological, psychological and social aspects to various kinds of anxiety that adolescents may experience.

Parenting Oppositional Youth
Presented by: Dr. Donna MacLachlan, Child Psychiatrist
Wednesday, February 13, 2013 6:00-7:30 pm
It can be difficult at times to distinguish between the typical “push back” of adolescence and when the struggles may be signs of something more troubling. Dr. MacLachlan will focus on the characteristics of Oppositional Defiant Disorder, the dynamic between teens and parents that reinforce oppositional behaviours and how to disengage from this dynamic. Questions and input from parents/guardians will be welcome.
