Parent Management Training / Family Therapy – caregivers and youth of all ages

Parent management training has been shown to help caregivers manage difficult childhood behaviors. Our family therapy programs tailor and incorporate parent management training techniques, psycho-education, family therapy, and skill development to reduce family stress.

Parenting with Love and Limits – caregivers and youth 10+

Parenting with Love and Limits (PLL) is an evidenced-based family education, skill building, and therapeutic intervention for families of  adolescents aged 10-18. Most families see a significant reduction in family stress and improvement in behavior in as little as 6-weeks. It is traditionally offered in a group model with 4-6 families enrolled and participating together.

Individual Family Model Parenting with Love and Limits is a 12-week modification to the evidence-based group model PLL. It includes all of the same components of PLL such as skill building and family therapy for families and adolescents aged 10-18. Most families see a significant reduction in family stress before program graduation.

It depends on the family. During your first meeting with your provider, you will work together to determine who should be involved and at what frequency. In general, the more family members involved, the quicker the positive change. But we also recognize all family needs are different.
