Making the decision to send a child or teen to a residential treatment facility is often difficult for families. Programs like the Child Center's Parent University keep a family involved in treatment, helping families ensure a successful transition back home and reinforcing treatment and recovery needs.

Parent University helps parents and caregivers of children at Rogers Child Center become familiar with the treatment components and terminology a child will learn during his or her treatment. Through a series of educational seminars, our clinical staff works to help families feel more confident and comfortable applying the principles used.

These interactive presentations include:

  • An introduction to CBT and ERP concepts and applications
  • Parental accommodation
  • Behavioral modification
  • Thinking errors

"Our goal is to have parents think of themselves as a coach. Just like in sports, the coach is involved in the direction, training and support of (treatment) goals to create long-term success." says Eddie Tomaich, clinical services manager at the Child Center.
