We first met Jack’s family when they were referred to the Caregiver Support Program from the
Ministry of Children and Family Development. During the first few meetings Jack was very quiet
and would not share much about themselves. Through the Caregiver Support Program, Jack
participated in lots of fun activities. After meeting regularly and building a stronger relationship
based on trust, Jack began to open-up. Jack identified that they wanted to work on their high
impulsivity that tended to cause them to act before thinking about the consequences and was
getting them into trouble. After going through the program, Jack is finding better outlets for these
impulses, and communicating more about their feelings. These days Jack is motivated to succeed,
engaging in healthy behaviors, playing sports, doing better in school, and making personal
connections with peers.
