Bringing Baby Home Workshop

Facilitator: Daelynn Takasaki, Registered Psychologist

This research-based Bringing Baby Home workshop prepare couples for life with baby and helps them be the best parenting team possible. In a relaxed and supportive environment, parents learn to strengthen their relationship and foster baby’s development during this challenging time. They build on what Dr. Gottman and colleagues found is the best predictor of marital adjustment after baby arrives: the quality of friendship in the marriage.

Counselling

Individuals may seek counselling for a variety of reasons.  Therapists at True Balance specialize in the following areas: OCD, anxiety, depression, stress, grief/loss, self-injurious behaviours, self esteem, parenting, identity issues, body image, divorce/separation, relationships, life transitions, and trauma.  We work with individuals, couples, families, children, and adolescents. 

Coping With My OCD Group

Facilitator: Tanya Krueger, Registered Psychologist

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is when you have unwanted thoughts, feelings, and behaviours that are difficult to control and cause a lot of stress.  Individuals can attend this group if they have tendencies of OCD.  A formal diagnosis is not needed.  Do you find yourself obsessing over certain thoughts or worries?  Do you do or think certain things to give yourself temporary relief from these intrusive thoughts, only to find they keep coming back?  This group focuses on techniques shown in research to be effective to deal with these OCD tendencies.  Participants will learn about OCD, strategies to cope with it, and find connection with others who deal with similar concerns.  Separate groups are offered for children, adolescents, and adults. 

Managing My Anxiety Group

Facilitator: Tanya Krueger, Registered Psychologist

This group is for those who experience a lot of worry in their lives.  Do you find yourself over-thinking things or worrying about things you shouldn't have to?  Do you lose sleep or avoid things you would like to do because you're anxious?  This group will help participants understand anxiety, learn strategies to manage it, and also find connection with others who are dealing with anxiety.  Separate groups are offered for children, adolescents, and adults.

Teambuilding Workshop

Facilitator: Tanya Krueger, Registered Psychologist

This workshop is geared towards helping teams work well together.  It can be catered to the group requesting the services and be either on or off site.  Workshops can be anywhere from 1-16 hours in length.  Potential themes include team dynamics, dealing with stress, group problem solving strategies, dealing with difficult people, team visions, and building connections.  This workshop is educational and interactive.  It can focus on having a lot of fun together or dealing with the tough stuff.

The Seven Principles for Making a Marriage Work Workshop

Facilitator: Daelynn Takasaki, Registered Psychologist

The Seven Principles Workshop is based on The New York Times bestseller The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work,  which was developed from Dr. Gottman’s four decades of research. The purpose of the workshop is to address couples disrupting negative behaviors that send marriages onto the rocks. Showing partners how to work with the small daily moments that make up the heart and soul of any relationship, the Seven Principles Workshop will provide participants with proven, practical, and effective strategies for making marriage work.

Psychological Assessments

Psychologist: Daelynn Takasaki, Registered Psychologist

Assessment is a specialized process of administering standardized assessments, observations and anecdotal information in uncovering an individual’s unique needs. The ultimate goal of assessment is to better understand that we all have specialized needs and assessment can offer recommendations to support individuals in reaching their potential.

 

A variety of assessments can be offered, including:

Parenting Assessments

Psycho-Educational Assessments

Mental Health Assessments

Functional Capacity Assessments

Threat Assessment Training - Level I

Facilitator: Daelynn Takasaki, Registered Psychologist

The primary purpose of this two-day training is to teach school administrators, counsellors, police officers, and other related partners (community mental health, social services, probation, etc.) the multidisciplinary process of determining if a threat maker actually poses a risk to a target or targets they have threatened.  Teams also assess students who already have histories of violence and are concerned about further and/or more serious violence potential. 

Prepare Crisis Response - Two-day Training

Facilitator: Daelynn Takasaki, Registered Psychologist

This 2-day workshop provides school-based mental health professionals and other school crisis intervention team members with the knowledge necessary to meet the mental health needs of students and staff following a school-associated crisis event. With updated research and crisis intervention strategies, this workshop teaches participants how to prevent and prepare for psychological trauma, helps to reaffirm both the physical health of members of the school community and students' perceptions that they are safe and secure, evaluates the degree of psychological trauma, responds to the psychological needs of members of the school community, and examines the effectiveness of school crisis intervention and recovery efforts.
