We won’t give up if you don’t give up.
To bridge this transition, Benchmark provides, at no additional cost, a five-part series of Parent Coaching calls to parents of newly enrolled participants. The coaching calls are designed to support parents as they adjust to Benchmark’s curriculum of emotional growth, education, work skills and independent living.
The Parent Coaching calls are facilitated by a Parent Coach Professionals® Coach, as a partnership with Benchmark Transitions®. Each of the five parent coaching calls has a focused topic to address issues such as shifting parenting techniques to gaining confidence in their communications with their young adult in program. It is our goal to provide both the student and the family with all the tools necessary to make transitioning into adulthood a successful reality.
In addition to providing support, the parent coaching calls also prepare parents to attend Benchmark’s Parent Seminar, a three-day intensive parent outreach program, during which time parents learn parenting techniques specific to communicating with young adults and gain further insight into the Benchmark Transitions® curriculum.
Finally, as participants bring closure to their adolescence and emerge into adulthood through their process at Benchmark, family relationships are positively enhanced. Whether your child needs an educational or vocational program; a behavioral health or substance abuse and after care program or they just need to grow up and learn necessary life skills, we can provide comprehensive emotional growth and structured environment for them to succeed. And we keep you, the parent, involved every step of the way.
