STOP NOW AND PLAN (SNAP©)
SNAP© is an award winning, evidence based manualized cognitive behavioural strategy that was developed at the Child Development Institute in Toronto, Ontario over 30 years ago. Children ages 6-12 participate in a 13 week structured group that teaches self-control and problem solving skills. We challenge the child’s cognitive distortions that result in anti-social behaviour, and encourage an alternative response that results in a positive outcome. By helping children to deal with their anger and manage their emotions, they are able to learn to stop and think before they act, and deal with difficult situations.
WHO WE CAN HELP
Children who benefit most from the SNAP© program are boys and girls ages 6-11 that are experiencing serious behavioural problems at home, at school, or with people of authority.
