Strathcona County and EICS present: Power of Relationship with Dr. Jody Carrington
*** April 26, 2018: Please note that this event is at maximum capacity. Registration is now closed.
 
Strathcona County and Elk Island Catholic Schools are joining together to present an amazing evening with Dr. Jody Carrington on the importance of connections with our children through building positive relationships. This free event will take place on Friday, April 27 at 7:00 p.m. at the Community Centre Agora on Festival Way in Sherwood Park.
 
Dr. Jody Carrington has been sharing her uplifting message about the power of building positive relationships with our children and how connection – no matter what age – can be the most powerful tool we use in parenting.
 
During recent Community Talk conversations, nearly 8,000 people shared experiences and ideas on how to best create a community where people feel supported, safe and connected. The results indicated nearly 88% of people agreed it is important for people to feel like they belong and are connected to others. However, only 69.8% of people currently believe people feel like they belong right now.
 
Dr. Jody Carrington is a Clinical Psychologist who has spent most of her career working with children and families who have experienced trauma. For 10 years, she worked on the Mental Health Inpatient Units of the Alberta Children’s Hospital, where she became a believer in the power of the relationship in assisting children and their families who are struggling with emotional disregulation.
 
The Elk Island Catholic School Division and Strathcona County Family and Community Services are honoured to present an evening with Dr. Jody Carrington, as part of a shared vision to create a supported, safe and connected community in Strathcona County.
 
While there is no cost to this event, we are asking people to pre-register for planning purposes.
