Family Involvement

The clinical staff here at the Villa works closely with the family, as family involvement is a crucial part of a child's healing process. Family therapy is available based on what is clinically indicated and focuses on the family's strengths and reinforcing the positive aspects of relationship. What is more, we like the parents to spend time with their children in the residential milieu so that they can learn the interventions that work the best for their child.

Our skilled child care staff can demonstrate to parents how children can be redirected and behaviors confronted in a caring, straightforward and supportive way. Regular conferences, progress reports, and involvement in treatment team meetings help parents stay informed of their child's progress. Letters, telephone calls and visits help the child feel part of the family even while away.
