Block Building Therapies is pleased to bring Dr. Tim Feeney, Clinical Psychologist back to Winnipeg in April, 2020.  Since our last 2 day workshop with Dr. Feeney in 2012, attendees, educators and clinicians have been asking when he will be returning to Winnipeg.  Finally, Dr. Feeney is coming back to share his excellent knowledge and experience in his work with students and adults with complex behavioural needs.

Please click here to view our poster for his upcoming hands-on workshop.  Bring your most complex case studies as there will be more than enough time to discuss every situation you may have with students and people you support.  Educators, paraprofessionals and clinical staff are all welcome, as well as families and caregivers who are supporting our clients.
