You’ll begin with an 90-minute Initial Assessment & Consultation to identify problems and goals. We’ll discuss any help you’ve gotten so far, detail your personal strengths and weaknesses, and talk about what kind of support system you have in place currently.
From here, we’ll determine how many (1-hour each week) sessions there will be total in which we’ll help you shift your mindset to focus on the needs of your child(ren). We have developed a robust curriculum backed by evidence-based research. We encourage you to keep a folder with all your work, and we’ll do regular exercises incorporating real examples from your life to help you internalize the information.
Through this work, we’ll uncover what sort of parenting style you currently have, what kind you want to have, and any issues that are arising. We will assess your current relationship with your child(ren) and how this can be improved. The work is personalized to you and your family, and our goal is to empower parents with the best interests of your child(ren) being the top priority.
Why It’s Beneficial
Many parenting educational offer a one-size-fits-all approach, but no one’s situation is the same. Our Parenting Education service allows you to work closely with an experienced professional to build a knowledge base that best serves the needs of your unique family.
From here, you can take what you’ve learned and apply it on your own, or you can move further into consultation or coaching if you feel you need more hands-on support to implement your plans. We can help tailor a package that works best for you.
Additionally, if you have an order from the court to attend parenting classes, this service will satisfy those requirements.
