When parents reach out to us, they may believe that their family is hopelessly damaged due to their child’s struggles. Families often experience a good deal of conflict, negativity, and poor communication; they long for a more peaceful, joyful family.
Asheville Academy 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 approach supports families by:
At Asheville Academy, family involvement and a personalized therapeutic experience help strengthen family bonds. This is a large part of what makes Asheville Academy uniquely suited to help your child and family achieve long-term success.
Your child 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 child or their 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 child.
Each week you’ll take part in a family Skype session with your child and their therapist to discuss their 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 their journey between visits. In addition, you will have two more social calls a week with your child to stay in touch.
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 children. These seminars typically feature classes for parents, group therapy, talks on psychoeducational development and unique learning experiences.
