Historically, therapeutic boarding schools and adolescent treatment centers largely ignored the critical role of family in the treatment process. New Haven, however, has been an industry leader in family-based treatment, implementing a robust program of family therapy, family systems approaches, and family events for fifteen years. We know that for your daughter's healing to last, you have to be a part of it.
As a key element of our family program, parents and siblings can participate directly in the New Haven on-campus experience six times a year during our family weekends. During these weekends, families from across the country gather to spend time with their daughters and to participate in recreational activities, experiential therapy, family therapy, group therapy, and parent-instruction groups. These three-day events give parents the opportunity to spend time with staff, make deep connections with other parents, engage their daughters in new ways, and get a taste for life at New Haven. Parents can also schedule conferences with their daughter's teachers and therapists, as well as consultations with our medical and psychiatric team.
Family weekends ensure that all family members share, support, and benefit from the New Haven experience. A shared experience is the key to lasting change for your daughter and your whole family.
