The 10-week parent group is co-led by a TEGH (Toronto East General Hospital) psychiatric expert in childhood anxiety and a trained CDI social worker. Children are referred to this program through TEGH intake services; a physician’s referral is necessary. This group is led by Dr. Gili Adler Nevo and Ms. Laurie Charlton (MSW).
