Family Therapy & Family Skills Building
Family Therapy utilizes a holistic approach, and aims to involve all members of the family who wish to participate. This approach can be helpful for families who are survivors of crime, endured trauma, or are going through a transition such as divorce, loss/grief, or developmental periods. Family therapy works to create common goals for the family to work towards that reflect all participating members strengths and challenges. Family Skills Building is an excellent opportunity for families who are struggling with structure and routine as well as behavioral issues within the home and community. This program includes all members of the family who are willing to participate, and equips parents with psycho-education on child and adolescent development, as well as effective parenting strategies.
