Touchstone Family Association
Strengthening Families • Building Community

Touchstone is a non-profit community based social service agency. We have been providing services to Richmond and nearby areas since 1983.

Our services have primarily focused on preserving and enhancing family relationships. Through qualified staff, we offer a wide variety of professional services to the community.

Connect Parent Group

CPGConnect is a 10-week evidence based program, that promotes social, emotional and behavioural adjustment and attachment security in children and youth between the ages of 8 and 18 years of age.

Parents meet in small groups with two clinical counsellors and trained facilitators, for 1.5 hours each week. Touchstone facilitators ensure a caring climate for participants to feel supported. 

Each session provides parents with a new perspective on parent-teen relationships and adolescent development. Parents watch role-plays, do exercises and discuss new ways of responding to challenging behaviour and problems. Research shows that parents report feeling less stressed and more effective in parenting; they see fewer behaviour problems and better social functioning in their teen.
