PARENT SUPPORT SERVICES
Parent Support Services Family involvement is a vital component of a client's success at Living Well Transitions. Living Well Transitions works so well in part because of the emphasis we place on establishing solid and meaningful lines of communication with both the client and the parents. Beyond finding parent engagement supportive of our client's ability to grow toward independence, we also recognize this involvement as a critical factor in a client and family being able to fully utilize our strengths as both a change agent and a therapeutic program. For this reason, we continue to focus a significant amount of time, energy and resources on our parent services as one of the foundational components of the work that we do together.
In addition to your work with the Therapist, you will also be working with a Parent Liaison. This work will help you orient to Living Well, support your young adult's successful transition into adulthood, and help you continue to develop strategic thoughts for developing your relationship with your son or daughter. All families participate in parent orientation, which provides a basic overview and outline for success with Living Well Transitions and for strengthening your relationship with your son or daughter. Beyond this orientation, we also offer parent coaching to teach and reinforce specific strategies and skills for parenting your young adult child. Through exploring your strengths and challenges as a parent, examining what's happened and worked in the past, setting expectations for the future and taking ongoing action steps to work on the relationship, parent coaching will underscore your confidence and competence to powerfully parent your young adult child.
