What We Do

Family Involvement

Embracing Family through Involvement

At Intermountain Residential, we believe healthy relationships within the security of a family are key to the success of your child. We believe that families, like children, are capable of growth and change. Your family is an essential part of your child’s treatment, so it is critical that you are an active member of the treatment process. 

The greatest predictor of sustained success is the family’s ability to make changes within the family system.

The family’s journey parallels your child’s within the program.  It is our goal to co-parent and co-regulate our families while they work to re-establish connection and confidence within their relationship with their child.

For children and families alike, processes of growth, healing and change are intertwined. Frequent family contact including campus visits, phone calls, letters, emails, home visits, and participation in family workshops is a critical part of the process. Family participation, both clinically and within the milieu, are a requirement of treatment. 

Call us to discuss your family system and we can explain how we personalize treatment for your child and your family.

Family Workshops/L.I.F.E. Day

In addition to family therapy, parents and siblings are required to participate in quarterly family workshops called L.I.F.E. (Learning through Interactive Family Experiences) Days.  During these workshops, families across the country receive content specific presentations including [Attunement, Supportive Language, The Power of Play, Why They Do What They Do, and Transitions] and participate in parent groups, and full family groups.  Siblings also get the opportunity to participate in a group led by our staff.  The intention is for this group to provide a safe space to talk about variety of topics, [including their position in the family and the impact of having a sibling in treatment, fears, transitions, etc]. These workshops give families the opportunity to expand their knowledge, spend time with staff, develop connections with other parents, and spend time as a family integrating what they are learning into their everyday interactions.
