What the family needs to know: Bring your honesty and an open mind to these sessions. It is often we don’t say the things we really feel or provide the feedback we want to give because we fear the potential of retribution or isolation. In these sessions we want to put “all our cards on the table” so we have a working framework for improvement. It is important to remember that our perceptions of what is “normal” or “ideal” may need to be adjusted. The “perfect family” does not exist. The goal should be a loving, caring, and supportive family that is aware of their challenges and strengths
Day 10-ongoing (2-10 hours)
additional resources independently.
Day 28-35 (2 hours)
What the family needs to know: Each month will be conceptualized as a phase of treatment. Most families will be engaging in this level of service between six to nine months. Each month will build on the other to gain skills, insight, and resilience. There will be a gradual shift moving from the Family First Aid program to individual work, eventually resulting in maintenance phase or discharge.
