October Parent Workshop
October 30 - November 1
At Cascade Crest Transitions, we believe that parents are a vital part of whether a young adult succeeds at CCT and afterwards. Therefore, we offer a workshop to engage more intensively with families.
Families are asked to attend one workshop during their young adult’s program. The workshop is a three-day multi-family therapeutic experience offered five times a year. The Parent Workshop is designed to support families in strengthening their relationships to support their young adult in transitioning to healthy independent adulthood. Dr. Sean Roberts explains, “The focus of the parent workshop is on improving the health of the entire family system and to establish the groundwork for an adult-to-adult relationship between our clients and their parents.” The layout of the workshop presents Parents the opportunity “to connect with other families while gaining skills and increased awareness into their own work.” Dr. Roberts continues to describe that, “once the parents have acquired those skills the young adults join us as we dive into multi-family experiential work.” Overall, Dr. Roberts adds that, “the three day experience is supportive, challenging, unique, and rich. I always leave a workshop in awe of the vulnerability and commitment to personal growth our clients and families exhibit!”
The Parent Workshop runs from Wednesday morning until Friday late afternoon. Typically, parents arrive on Tuesday and depart on Saturday or Sunday. Parents are welcomed and encouraged to extend their stay over the weekend to explore Bend and bond with their young adult. You will have the opportunity to meet individually with Case Managers, Academic/Vocational Coaches and Parent Specialist. The Parent Workshop also includes intensive multi-family group therapy with CCT therapists.
