Name of Organization – Program or Service: AMCAL Family Services – Community group
Program or Service Description: Emotional management:
AMCAL was extremely excited to implement a new Anger Management and Conflict Resolution program – now called Emotional Management. After a lot of feedback and new trends that we have been seeing in youth, it was clear that we needed to expand the reach of this program to not only focus on anger but to broaden the focus on all emotions. The newly revised Emotional Management program is still an eight-week program for adolescents aged 12 to 17 years. This program aims to assist adolescents in developing and maintaining positive relationships with others as well as using effective coping strategies when dealing with difficult situations. The program helps adolescents identify their different emotions, and how they are currently playing a role in their lives and relationships with others. It is a fee-based program offered to the community and High Schools from September to July.

Parenting in the 21st Century:
AMCAL offers workshops designed to provide tips, tools, & mutual support to parents of children from pre-schoolers to late teens. Each workshop consists of four sessions of information & discussion focused on concrete skills such as: setting boundaries; being consistent; & contracting about household roles, rules & expectations. Some new topics suggested for upcoming workshops: parenting from separate households; values & parenting.
