This one-time training will provide early years professionals with practical and evidence-informed information and strategies to strengthen their capacity to support families with children ages 0–6 who are experiencing mild to moderate or ‘everyday’ levels of anxiety.

The session is open to ALL Front-Line FRP Staff (e.g. Family Support Workers, Community Facilitators, Parent Educators & more)!

In this online session, workshop participants will work to independently complete the EASEY online course from beginning to end, as well as to connect as a group for facilitated deeper reflection and discussion, and to share resources and ideas with colleagues.  All participants who proceed through the entire EASEY online course will receive a Certificate of Completion as well as access to all the EASEY resources. EASEY was developed by the Ministry of Children and Family Development, and a multitude of early years professionals, educators, parents, and Indigenous community members.
