Family Talk Workshops
At Family Talk workshops, parents, children, and families of all structures build connectedness and trust as they explore health-related topics. Families learn, laugh and share together making a potentially sensitive subject more comfortable. These workshops aim to foster deep connections through dialogue and activities, creating a strong foundation for a lifetime of communication. Family Talk workshops are inclusive - we learn together in mixed family and gender groups to encourage understanding and acceptance.
