As parents if we want things to change in our life, we have to decide to make things change.

Step-By-Step Plan

Based on your understanding of your child's development and where you want your child to be in the future, this workshop focuses on helping you come up with a step-by-step plan on how to get there. One of the most important steps that families have to undertake to bring about change is to set goals. The process of setting goals helps families identify the direction they want to go in and the steps they need to take to get there.

'Stages of Change' Model

Participants will learn about the 'Stages of Change Model' to understand that long term change is not instant, but a process of steps that each member of the family undergoes to change old patterns and adopt a new one.

Practical Tools

This workshop will give families practical tools to know precisely what they want to achieve, identify the barriers and roadblocks that may be holding them back, plan a realistic pathway towards achieving your goals and use evaluation tools to monitor their progress to achieving the goal.

Participants will take home a workbook that will help you set and achieve goals independently.
