blueFire Wilderness Supports Struggling Parents
blueFire Wilderness’ Clinical Director and Co-Founder Jon Worbets has started a parent support group. The decision to send your child to a wilderness program is a difficult one and this group aims to help parents connect with others in similar situations and provide the necessary support.
blueFire’s family systems model of treatment includes the whole family so that when the child returns home, the systems are going to be in place for the whole family to succeed. This parent support group bolsters existing family systems with extra emotional support for family members as their child begins, and continues, on their journey. This is very important to keep parents dedicated to the helpful work this program sets up so that their child and their family will continue to be successful.
Currently, the support group meets every other week over Zoom and usually has a topic or specific encouragement that is then discussed amongst the participants and led by Jon. Since its inception, it has over doubled the number of previous attempts of a parent support group.
BlueFire Wilderness is a wilderness therapy program based just outside of Boise, Idaho that offers teens ages 11-17 a comprehensive adventure experience. BlueFire Wilderness combines clinical expertise, academic assessments, and a family systems approach to help teens struggling with emotional, behavioral and social challenges.
