Collaboratively Caring For Kids
Collaboration between families, neighbors, teachers, and school counselors is a non-negotiable when it comes to caring for children. At Valley, we identify support systems and offer specialty “wrap-around” care services so that everyone involved can be on the same page when it come to caring for our younger clients.
What to Expect
With the care and guidance of licensed counselors, children learn to identify and express their feelings, develop self-care skills, and deepen communication with their support-systems (parents/caregivers).
We provide all types of counseling and counseling environments including: Individual, family, small-group, parent-education & skill-building, medication-management & more.
The individual sessions include:
- Role-play exercises
- Other fun activities
Parents/caregivers join their children for a portion of therapy to work on:
- Opening the lines of communication
- Sharing feelings and concerns with one another
- Healing the hurt in their relationships
The Benefits of Children’s Counseling
We educate children about the disease of substance abuse through age-appropriate activities so they realize:
- Addiction is not their fault.
- They are not alone.
- They have a support-system they can trust.
- There are healthy ways to cope with the pain and difficulties they face at home.
