Improve your family’s mental health during Children’s Mental Health Week, May 1 to 7, with Kinark Child and Family Services.

Children who enjoy arguments, are easily annoyed, have difficulty cooperating, and respond badly to disappointment may fit the diagnosis of Oppositional Defiant Disorder (O.D.D.).

This presentation with psychiatric consultant Dr. Kevin Nugent will identify the descriptors of O.D.D. and will explore the view-point of these children. Discover strategies to help a child who is oppositional and defiant, and help eliminate some difficulties they may be having at home and school.

Presented in partnership with Kinark Child and Family Services.
