As part of PRN for Families' ongoing effort to best support families who choose to bring their child home following a wilderness therapy experience, PRN is currently offering a specialized package of services specifically tailored for this transition. PRN’s Wilderness Reunification package is designed to assist families in strengthening the emotional, behavioral and communication skills that they learned in wilderness, while further building on these strategies and creating support for healthier family relationships within their own community.
PRN’s foundational approach to supporting families utilizes a home-based family systems assessment, and the Wilderness Reunification package offers this as a three day (rather than a five day) process. A licensed clinician, trained in the family preservation model, spends time with each family member and with the family as a whole during this time. Observation, formal and informal assessment, and collaboration with local clinical, academic and social supports provides the PRN clinician with a clear sense of what is needed, and how to move forward with providing the family with needed wrap-around support.
The assessment process is followed by 12 weeks of case management, case consultation, family coaching, parenting education, mentor services, life skills, and 24/7 crisis support. PRN’s services are always customized to meet the specific needs of each family with whom we work. The Wilderness Reunification package is offered as a more affordable option to those families who are concerned about the cost of ongoing treatment, but who also recognize the importance of extended care in order to bring their family into a healthier mode of functioning.
