Summit Achievement is excited to announce we now provide Parent Coaching to all of our enrolled families. Beginning this month, parent coaching sessions through Parent Coach Professionals are now a part of the Summit Achievements family programming. This service is in addition to the intensive family programming that Summit Achievement already provides: parents present for intake are asked to meet with the clinician, weekly counseling sessions with their child and a programmed family visit.
The goal of Parent Coach Professionals is to support parents, provide education and help parents create new tools and strategies for working with their child. Every family who enrolls at Summit Achievement is provided six sessions with Parent Coach Professionals during their child's stay, or immediately following discharge. These over-the-phone sessions are available every 1-2 weeks during a student's time at Summit Achievement. Using skills based coaching, these sessions will cover topics such as parenting styles and roles, communication tools and strategies, parent learning styles vs student learning styles and boundary setting. This is an exciting new service for all the families who enroll at Summit Achievement to assist adapting the family system at home while their child is in the wilderness therapy program.
About Summit AchievementSummit Achievement is, and always has been, guided by positive reinforcement and the power of choice. Our outcome-focused program employs effective therapeutic and educational principals. Through the process of engaging therapy, classroom academics and exciting wilderness expeditions, students experience the therapeutic benefits of outdoor adventure-based activities while learning to manage the demands of a more traditional environment. As an intentionally small, owner-operated wilderness therapy program, we serve adolescent boys and girls, ages 13-20, from around the world.
