When a family enrolls their daughter at New Haven, they commit to attend all six (6) family weekends, designed as crucial components for parents to fully participate in this work and provide the best outcomes for their daughter. January marked the first Family Weekend of 2019 at both of New Haven campuses. Each New Haven Family traveled to the home their daughter lives in, to participate in this intensive two day therapeutic experience.
One student recently shared her experience with her family during parent weekend at New Haven, “Parent weekend can be, (if you make it) a very memorable weekend. My family and I have attended every parent weekend since January of 2018. Each time brings new knowledge and fun times. My parents have been divorced since I was 12 so at first having them attend groups together was awkward and uncomfortable. There was tension and very little conversation between them. As the months passed however, it got easier to navigate quality time between the two and we would occasionally go out to eat all together."
She went on to explain, "As far as groups go I personally think that my family has done some of our best work during parent weekends. Each therapist that leads a group opens an emotionally safe space for each person to push themselves and their family members to be open and honest. We’ve cried, laughed, yelled and shared endless love and support during these groups. Each schedule is specifically fit for where the girl is at in her program. You get to hear other families strengths and weaknesses and that provides comfort and support through your time here.”
