Family-Based Services: In-Home Family Therapy

In-Home Family Therapy; Family Based Services

The toughest lessons learned on the road to family wellness are often experienced along the way, and even the most prepared family can't predict what conditions lie ahead. 

Family-Based practitioners at The Village are like a family's custom designed road map. They are trained in therapies that help famillies support their children and adolescents. They specialize in helping prevent families from having to place a child at risk outside the home, and for reunifying those children back into their family home or the community.


Through services provided in the family's home, The Village's in-home family therapy helps parents navigate their children's needs, teach them how to parent effectively, and work diligently to help families be successful, stay safe and stay together.


Typical issues addressed with families include:
Parent/child conflict
Child abuse and neglect
Parenting skills
Emotional/behavioral problems of child/adolescent
Reunification of families when a child is returning home from placement.
