All Kinds of News for December 06, 2017
The Experiential Healing Institute has celebrated its first year of parent and whole family training. Although the in-home intervention service is a new company, Robert Trout, MA, founder and trainer is a seasoned veteran to the Family Choice Behavioral Healthcare industry with over 17 years of experience. Trout created a new approach to offering assistance to an ongoing problem within the home and family unit. The Experiential Healing Institute (EHI) is offering support for families who want to learn new approaches and techniques within the dynamic of their family. Through a systematic and individualized approach, EHI guides and trains parents who are hoping to prevent out-of-home placement for their child or assisting in developing an effective transition back home from a program.
Robert spent years working in and around wilderness therapy programs and residential treatment programs in the industry. Through these experiences, he realized that the industry needed a platform to transfer the skills and knowledge from the 'on the ground' professionals to the parents and care-givers supporting their child once they returned home at the end of their treatment. It became evident to him that programs would do a masterful job of creating a platform for deep, therapeutic work and connection for families, but what would often happen is the parents (who had read the books and had their weekly calls with therapists) were stuck in patterns because they did not have an opportunity to practice their knowledge in a real-life scenario, but only in theory. Naturally, all the good intentions and “homework” could not prevent the conflict which would often immediately erupt and block the “path” for change.
Through these experiences, The Experiential Healing Institute was founded. They offer a family a team of professional “trainers” that travel to family's home and facilitate a two or three day intensive training / workshop. These intensive in-home workshops provide “hands on” training. The goal is to focus on real life and practical skills that will change how the parent(s) navigate their relationship with their children.
Here are some of the areas of focus that clients have worked on:
- How to articulate effective messages from parent to child
- Teaching techniques in de-escalation
- The roles in a family and the dynamics of these roles
- Perspective and manipulation
- Understanding the diagnosis and the mental health needs and behavioral issues of the child
- Co-Parenting strategies for divorced parents
- Helping create and maintain a personalized structure and approach within the home
Whether a parent has already placed a child in a treatment setting or is working to prevent an intervention from occurring, The Experiential Healing Institute guides and trains the whole family with therapeutic skills that are utilized in programs. This individualized assists in creating the support and structure that helps lead to safe and healthy relationships in the family system.
