The Community Social Pediatrics Institute offers community-based training based on the D-CODE workshop training program.

This series of workshops, based on fun, step-by-step learning, offers tools to help children take their place as full-fledged citizens. What’s more, the D-CODE workshops enable participants to develop a common language and contribute to building a fairer, more equitable society.

This initiative of the Fondation Dr Julien, created by Me Hélène (Sioui) Trudel, is part of the Community Social Pediatrics model, and is based on respect for all the rights set out in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, ratified by Canada in 1991.

Who are the D-CODE workshops for?

  • For children and young people, to develop knowledge of their rights and responsibilities, peaceful communication skills and the ability to transform a problem into a solution.
  • For parents and adults in the community to learn the importance of respecting the full range of children’s rights, and to familiarize themselves with their role as protective and caring adults.
  • For practitioners and professionals working with children and families, to raise awareness of children’s rights and how to support their development.

The D-CODE workshop team also offers:

  • Facilitation training to enable you to offer D-CODE workshops for children and adults in your community or Community Social Pediatrics center.
  • A turnkey approach including animation guides and all training materials
  • Support and tools to help you successfully roll out the workshops
