Canada's Premier Children's Mental Health & Parenting Event

**Exclusive Pre-Sale Pricing Until August 29th**

This year's conference will be a hybrid event- so you can attend in-person at the N.A.I.T Campus in Edmonton OR live-stream virtually from the comfort of your own home (so if you live elsewhere in Canada you don't have to miss out!)

Edmonton Children Mental Health Conference

This conference was designed for parents, caregivers, educators, and mental health professionals who want to learn about the latest research, innovations, and techniques pertaining to children’s mental health and attachment-based practices.

Ideas and strategies to help children reach their potential.

The Institute’s vision is that parents and professionals will walk away from the conference with a toolbox of new ideas and strategies to help children reach their fullest potential. The two-day online event will take place on November 26 & 27th, 2022. You will learn from a variety of experts including Dr. Christina Bjorndal, Morgan Bissegger, Joy Medori, Jacquie Ganton, Danyelle Lynch, Cierra Chmiliar, and Aynsley Graham as well as 15 additional workshops covering a range of topics impacting today’s youth, including issues of emotional intelligence and resiliency to the more intense struggles related to trauma and low self-esteem.

Additionally, these courses qualify for continuing education hours, and a certificate of completion can be obtained.

All early bird & pre-sale weekend pass purchasers will receive a free 3 hour e-course on “Navigating Parental Stress.

In this refreshing and highly compassionate workshop, Tania Johnson, will debunk the idea of conventional self-care before creating a new framework to guide parental well-being. We will explore foundational concepts in well-being, with a focus on concrete tools and strategies to optimize physiological needs (stress and sleep), connection needs, and self-growth.
