The parent feedback meetings are scheduled every 4- 5 weeks with email/phone support in between. During these meetings, feedback is provided about their child’s therapy process, developmental challenges and gains made overtime and emotional/behavioural changes.
The interaction between children’s problems and their families is always complex. Sometimes children develop problems as a way of signalling there is something wrong in the family. Other times the entire family becomes distressed because the child’s problems are so disruptive. In all cases, children and families heal faster when they work together and this is why parent feedback sessions are so important.
The meetings will involve building a relationship with the parents/caregiver by communicating regularly to develop a plan for resolving concerns as they are identified and to monitor the progress of the treatment. We seek to help the parent/caregiver gain an understanding of their child’s experiences in therapy so that they can sensitively and reliably respond to their child’s needs for security, nurturance and safety.
