Clinical Director Eugene “Gene” Marshall announced the 2016 Parent Conference and Weekend Schedule this week.
For years Heritage has been working with adolescents to help them reach their potential and to return home prepared to live productive and healthy lives. An important element to achieve this objective is to strengthen the relationship of the student and their families. Heritage does this in a number of ways including hosting a bi-annual parent weekend usually in April and August. It is strongly encouraged that parents and families attend these conferences to learn from break-out sessions, to participate in group therapy and recreation therapy and to spend time with their son or daughter.
Heritage also hosts Parent Weekends, smaller-scale events that take place three times per year. Parents are encouraged to attend these Parent Weekends to spend individual time with the treatment team, learn additional tools to strengthen family dynamics, share bonding experiences with their son or daughter and to network and learn from other families.
Parents will receive more specific information about each event well in advance so they can plan accordingly. When considering dates Heritage takes into consideration major holidays including religious holidays, other Heritage events such as the play while trying to spread Parent Weekends and Conferences evenly throughout the year.
