Family Involvement

Our therapists often include caregivers in order to support children in the context of their surrounding systems. The roles of parents, siblings, and other caregivers are integral, and most treatment plans include a certain amount of family involvement. We may recommend initial, periodic, or exclusive parent-only visits for younger children and/or youth with complex histories. The waiting room and offices are stocked with books to inspire learning and involvement even when parents aren't directly included in session. 

 

Family involvement is required for adolescents participating in our intensive services.

 

Specific parenting support options include:
