The toughest lessons learned on the road to family wellness are often experienced along the way, and even the most prepared family can't predict what conditions lie ahead.
In-Home Family Therapy (also known as Family-Based Services) practitioners at The Village are like a family's custom-designed road map. They are trained in therapies that help families support their children and adolescents. They specialize in helping prevent families from having to place a child at risk outside the home, and in reunifying those children back into their family home or the community.
Through services provided in the family's home, The Village's Intensive In-Home Family Therapy program helps parents navigate their children's needs, teaches them how to parent effectively, and works diligently to help families be successful, stay safe, and stay together.
Common issues addressed with families include:
- Parent-child conflict
- Child abuse and neglect
- Parenting skills
- Emotional/behavioral problems of child/adolescent
- Return of at-risk youth from out-of-home placement
In-Home Family Therapy at The Village Family Service Center operates on the belief that the best place to resolve family problems is within the context of the family's home and community. Programs are designed to offer concentrated, in-home, family-based therapy/counseling and support services to families who have at least one child at risk.
