Yorktown Child and Family Centre offers services through a number of community elementary and high schools.
School-Based Group Programs
These programs are offered in partnership with the School Boards and community schools primarily within the former City of York. Referrals are made directly by the school in which the program is offered. These programs focus on building skills to promote social interaction and emotional well-being with the goal of assisting with academic success.
The “Double T” program is an eight week manualized, cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) program for children aged 7-12 years displaying disruptive and aggressive behavior and their caregivers. The sessions are theme-based and utilize practice and repetition to assist the children with understanding the new concepts and strategies.
Healthy Relationships Workshop
Workshops are offered to high school students focusing on healthy sexuality and relationship issues.
Community Consultation and Presentations
Yorktown offers public education on children’s mental health issues through consultation, presentations, workshops, videotapes and training.
