Parent-Teen Mediation is a free and confidential program available to Burnaby and New Westminster families experiencing interpersonal conflict between parents and teenage children.
The program is staffed by highly skilled multilingual mediators with conflict-resolution training and experience working with youth.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Staffed by mediators with relevant university degrees, conflict-resolution training, and experience working with youth, Parent-Teen Mediation aims to improve family relationships by addressing each family’s unique needs.
Mediation typically lasts ten to twelve sessions and takes place over the course of three to four months. Our mediators meet with families in locations that are convenient to them, and we offer our services in several languages.
There is no fee for Parent-Teen Mediation, as funding is provided by the BC Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD).
