Details

The Aggression Prevention Program for people with intellectual disabilities was created by the Montreal Aggression Prevention Center (CPAM) in 1989 following a request from the West Island Rehabilitation Center.

 

A workshop is offered to parents, guardians and caregivers. This information session includes a description of the workshops and our approach to prevention.

The program is an adaptation of the workshops offered by the CPAM to women and children.

The teacher stays in the classroom during the workshop.
