Parent Transition Retreat

Parent Transition Retreat

October 6 & 7, 2022 Salishan Coastal Lodge, Gleneden Beach, Oregon

We understand that the success of your youth transitioning home is not only about the work done in treatment but in exploring the dynamics and triggers that occur for everyone involved. With proper planning and support, youth are more likely to be successful coming home and staying home.

This two-day parent retreat is perfect for parents who are either getting ready to transition their child home from treatment or have recently made that transition within the past six months. Parents will have time to connect and talk about their concerns and fears, and celebrate their accomplishments and hard work.

You’ll learn:  

  • What to expect in those first 90 days.
  • What to do when a crisis emerges.
  • How to handle conflicts. Setting boundaries and creating agreements.
  • How to build a support team around you.

You’ll leave with:

  • Skills to support your teen and family in transition.
  • Relationships with other parents in transition.
  • Concrete action steps and resources to enhance your transition experience.
