Conflict and communication issues within the family throw up barriers to a young man’s progress. Causeway requires both client and family to be all in on this journey, especially when you live together in one home. This is one of the most effective ways to ensure your son’s growth, development, and success in achieving his goals.
Our team will work with you to bring family conflicts to light. Left unaddressed, these challenges can generate resentment and confusion. Part of this is making sure that you as parents hear your son’s needs and wants. Our experienced therapists will guide you as a group in establishing ground rules, working through past issues, and providing the clarity that is needed to reach resolution.
As we move through this consistent, open-ended process of discovery together, you’ll improve the quality of family communication, build positive family dynamics, and reduce the grievances you have with one another.
The Causeway team is not a group of clinicians hiding behind a veil of confidentiality. We’ll keep you as parents up to speed on what’s happening with your son—and so will your son, because we’ll all be together in one room. At Causeway, parents stay informed. At the same time, we cultivate your son’s ability to hold court—to find his voice. To communicate his needs to both you and the team.
“Before finding causeway I was frustrated and lost. I am so thrilled to have their insight, perspective and direction. THANK YOU!!”
“We’ll be forever grateful for the tools CC provided both of our children with when they needed them most. They are both stronger and better prepared for potential challenges they may encounter in adulthood.”
“Working with my mentor at Causeway Collaborative felt less like a service and more like a having a friend who was helping me get my life back on track.”
No. Family Therapy is recommended as needed by the Center Director. That occurs in cases where the involvement of the parents on a more frequent basis is essential to the young man’s progress in the case. There is no obligation to engage. Causeway only recommends Family Therapy when we see it as necessary to help your son move forward.
Family Therapy uses psychologic theory to apply the principles of human behavior to assist you and your son in in coming together to achieve a variety of personal and family-centered goals. At Causeway a single licensed, trained professional facilitates Family Therapy on a regularly occurring basis. The frequency of visits is determined by the expertise of the professional.
Family Meetings, on the other hand, are unique to Causeway. They are a required part of our process for all clients. We hold Family Meetings on a once-per-month basis to review your son’s program, evaluate goals and objectives, modify session frequency and service types, and get consensus on the go-forward plan for your son’s treatment.
