The afternoon and evenings allow the family the spend time together doing activities that facilitate safe connection, this may include cooking a meal together, taking walks, or anything else the family enjoys. The family stay and sleeps in a private home we have rented specifically for them.
We also recognize that by the time parents come to us, they are typically exhausted and depleted. We desire to come alongside parents’ in their past and present journey in a manner which facilitates the experience of joy even in the midst of the suffering. We also know that as parents experience commitment, safety, acceptance, attunement and ultimately coregulation with their spouse, close friends, or a therapist that this further strengthens a parents capacity to provide this healing coregulation to their hurting child.
We believe that the CASA model provides a framework for healthy relationships that demonstrate consistency and reliability for the child, and helps them create security within themselves and within their relationships, and ultimately moves the relationship towards co-regulation and joy. CASA facilitates a shrinking of shame and increased sense of value and worth. CASA also facilitates a deeper understanding of the underlying causes for the child’s behavior which allows parents to then appropriately and effectively respond to those root causes.
We do ask that parents model being fully present during the entirety of the Intensive and that they refrain from using cell phones during the therapy hours.
