Saturday Morning Parent Talks

Between Hours hosts Free Public Talks for parents of young children:

Saturday Morning Parent Talks

Starting on February 20, 2016, we will kick off a community series of free parent talks that will focus on the inner world of the child and the experience of being a parent. In this community venture, which takes place on Saturday mornings, monthly, at Parentbooks on Harbord, we have collaborated with other community mental health providers who work from within a psychoanalytic perspective to bring this information to parents of young children and facilitate a dialogue.

Please pass along this information to any parents of young children you think may benefit. The venue is small, so pre-registration is required and registration will be on a first-come basis. We will retain a short wait list for cancellations. See the brochure for details.
