Monica Fyfe is a Certified Provider for the Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills (PEERS®) program. This is a 14-week, evidence-based social skills intervention for motivated adolescents in middle school or high school who are interested in learning ways to help them make and keep friends. During each group session adolescents are taught important social skills and are given the opportunity to practice these skills in session during socialization activities (e.g. role-plays, playing sports, board games, etc.).
Parents are taught how to assist their teens in making and keeping friends by providing feedback through coaching during weekly socialization homework assignments.

Echo Parenting is an empathy led approach to raising children. You will learn about:
- Child Development and Brain Development
- What social and emotional intelligence is and why it is so important when it comes to raising children.
- Why our childhood experiences inform how we parent today and how to overcome obstacles to connecting with your child.
- Why do we get so frustrated and angry with our children? Why do our children get so frustrated and angry? What you can do about it in a way that feels connected and loving for the both of you.
