When families first reach out to us, they may believe that their family’s dynamics are hopelessly damaged due to their daughter’s struggles. Their child’s challenges might be creating a rift in family relationships, which is affecting both parents and siblings. They are seeking a light in the darkness; a chance to establish healthier patterns and to heal as a family.
Asheville Academy for Girls provides an opportunity for families to reconnect and come out of the experience stronger than ever before.
At Asheville Academy for Girls, our family systems programming supports families by:
At Asheville Academy, family involvement and personalization of the therapy experience help strengthen family bonds and are a huge part of what makes Asheville Academy uniquely suited to help your daughter achieve success.
Your daughter will be looking to you for the love and support that provides the foundation for healing. This is why family involvement is a key component of our programming. We want to encourage consistent communication, so you can check in with your daughter or her therapist with just a quick call.
Rather than having to wait until a specified time to visit, you’ll be able to communicate directly with your child’s therapist to arrange a time that fits your schedule. As parents ourselves, we understand how it feels to miss your daughter.
Each week you’ll take part in a family call with your daughter and her therapist to discuss her progress and identify potential opportunities for improvement. This will strengthen the positive impact of the therapy on the family dynamic, heal old wounds and build healthier means of communication. In addition, these calls are another way for you to stay involved in her journey between visits.
Once per quarter, we hold family seminars where parents are invited to connect with other families, gain invaluable training and advice, and reconnect with their daughters. These seminars typically feature classes for parents, group therapy, talks on psychoeducational development and unique learning experiences. Attendance is not mandatory, but this is an opportunity you won’t want to miss.
