Practical strategies: A guide for parents/caregivers experiencing aggression
Talking about Aggression towards Family/Caregivers in Childhood and Adolescence (AFCCA) isn't easy. Many parents and caregivers feel shame, stigma, and isolation when seeking help. However, everyone involved, including the youth, faces risks of physical or psychological harm, as well as family instability and possible breakdown.
AFABC and Adopt4Life (Ontario's Adoptive, Kin and Customary Care Association) are here to provide understanding and a welcoming community for those on similar journeys.
Join Maude Champagne and Jenn Drudge from Adopt4Life’s AFCCA Family Supports Program for an open discussion about AFCCA.
They'll talk about:
- What exactly is AFCCA and why it happens
- Strategies for support
- Common challenges and effective interventions, like Non-Violent Resistance (NVR), de-escalation techniques, and building circles of support
