When our kids are struggling, the entire family system is impacted. Often, in order to sustain meaningful progress with participants, each member of the family needs to be engaged and working together to create positive changes as a team. At Plena, our goal is to help make these changes last by enhancing the quality of life for each and every family member.
Once per week, parents and guardians of program participants are encouraged to attend a virtual 45-minute multifamily group facilitated by our licensed teacher and clinical manager. Discussion topics focus on evidence-based strategies intended to enhance a parent’s ability to effectively set healthy boundaries, empathize and provide emotional support to their children. Parents are empowered through hearing other families’ struggles and are also encouraged by each other’s unique stories and solutions. We believe that parents deserve to feel heard and understand that they are not alone in this journey.
