A Promise For Parents provides individual and family counseling from a strengths based perspective that assumes all individual family members have purpose and strengths they bring to the family unit. To identify the strengths and individualized needs of families and their members, we conduct various parenting inventories, Parent Capacity Assessments and Protective Parenting Assessments.  Outcomes and recommendations from these inventories and assessments are then incorporated into Individual and Family Treatment Planning developed in conjunction with family members and their therapist.

Individual Counselors also act in coordination with Parenting Coaches and Small Group Facilitators. The effort to integrate and coordinate services is a well rounded approach to providing the best possible outcome. Additionally, parents are provided direct feedback during weekly sessions regarding their efforts and progress in the program.  Parents are also encouraged to process their feelings, concerns, questions and accomplishments during this time. 

Parent Coaching

A Promise For Parents Individually assigns a Parenting Coach for parents to meet with once per week preferably in the home environment. When the home environment is not an option our state of the art media facility and therapeutic playroom are designed specifically to provide parents positive direction and feedback during and following interactions with children.  The two way mirror, headsets, and videotaping capability allow parents the intensity of feedback they desire or require during and following visits.  Made for the sole purpose of identifying strengths and needs in parenting skills, video recordings are only viewed for the purpose of providing concrete feedback to parents and are kept in strictly locked locations when not in use.
