Offering a curriculum of over 60 online videos, worksheets and webinars, Wise Roots Parenting delivers online, on-demand psycho-education for parents whose kids are receiving treatment for emotional, behavioral or addiction issues. Addressing a gap in the continuum of therapeutic treatment of teens and young adults, Wise Roots Parenting has created a modern and innovative approach to engaging parents of struggling teens and young adults in the change process. From their laptop, desktop or mobile device, parents of struggling teens can now access best practices in nurturing successful launch of their kids at any time, from any location.
“In my work with families for the past 20 years, it’s increasingly clear that if the parents are engaged as effective partners in the therapeutic process, the positive change that treatment can affect for the kid is going to be quicker, go deeper, and last longer than if the parents are not on board with doing their own work,” says Brooks Witter, MA, LPC, a co-founder of Wise Roots Parenting. “When I was running a young adult transitions program,” continues Mr. Witter, “we only had about an hour a week with the parents, which wasn’t enough time to do all the work we needed to do as well as provide them with the concepts, psycho-education, and tools that would equip them to be more effective parents. I wanted to refer them to a resource they could access on their own time, so they could come into session oriented well to the work they can do to promote therapeutic change in their kids. Wise Roots Parenting is now that referral to support the parents at any time along their continuum of treatment.”
The curriculum is organized to provide parents better understanding of their kids, tools for effective interventions, and practices to promote their own well-being and resilience. Drawing on research into the neuro-development of adolescent brains, best practices in evidence-based behavioral learning, and the science of human attachment, Wise Roots Parenting provides parents of struggling teens and young adults the content they need to navigate the challenges of parenting a kid in treatment.
