Since her arrival as liaison officer for the Potton and Stanstead sectors, Julie has met with a few families in and around school.
Other members of the population, equally important when it comes to our community objective, have had brief chats with Julie in less formal settings, such as the Reilly House. Julie also had the opportunity to help serve meals during the Dinner Show put on in December by Mansonville Elementary School. A wonderful way to be directly involved in the community!
The Christmas Market held at the Jardins-des-Frontières School also provided an opportunity to meet some creative parents. These informal meetings might seem unimportant but, at times like these, people are more inclined to let down their guard. They’re in their element and feel right at home; we’re the ones who are leaving our comfort zone to go and meet them.
This should probably be one of the strategies we explore at the Journée des intervenants on February 23, when the topic will be how to deal with vulnerable families.
Moreover, many of you received training in the Parent’Aise Approach, and the training will continue. In February, facilitators from Stanstead’s PACE Group, as well as Memphré en Mouvement team members, will be among those receiving training.
Finally, I’d like to leave you with the words of one of my former teachers. He was referring to the give-and-take in relationships, and what made for a good relationship between a client and a counsellor: «The best interventions are those that aren’t hampered by the counsellor’s need to control.»
