Learn More About Family Coaching

Family Coaching is not therapy. Coaching is a unique partnership that helps clients identify goals and obstacles that keep people from moving forward as well as behaviors that get in the way.

Family coaching is a process where one or more members of a family partners with a coach to address goals that will ultimately improve their family dynamics. Family dynamics are the interactions between family members, how they relate to one another and how the family functions.as a whole..

We specialize in improving a family’s dynamics. We focus on several different dynamics, helping teens and children, assisting with parenting needs and working with the entire family together. Every family has their own group dynamics and unique structures, whether it is a traditional family with two parents (also known as a nuclear family), a single-parent family, a step-family, an extended family, a one-child family, an adopted family, or a family with same-sex parents, we can help!

We take pride in considering the needs and wants of each of the family members.

Often, families need help, just like a smaller organization would. They need to communicate about their shared values, beliefs and goals and see where they are aligned and where they may be out of sync. There are all sorts of tools that our coaches use to help families leverage their strengths as well as help decrease the noise in the background that may hold each person back from achieving their goals.

We help families and individuals identify their various values, wants, needs and goals and help the members come up with strategies to reach these goals as well as hold them accountable.

Our Coaches work on leveraging the strengths of individuals and groups as well as call attention to areas where they have room for improvement to help make forward progress.

Some common areas our  Family Coaches help with:

 

  • · New parent challenges
  •   Non corporal punishment discipline techniques
  • · Marriage challenges
  • · Communication
  • · Parenting issues for different stages, such as separation anxiety, depression 
  • · Blended family issues
  • · Teen pregnancy
  • · School dropout prevention
  • Anger or stress management 

There’s no one size fits all approach to family coaching. Each family has their own starting point as well as their own goals and values that they want to work toward.

Our Coaches use different approaches and tools when working with families because each family is unique. 

We think of the family as its own organization. So, we are clear that it often requires work to grow as individuals and situations change..

Some of the things that are often addressed are the following:

 

  • · Empowerment of all members within the family
  • · Improved communication
  • · Stronger relationships
  • · Increased respect
  • · Increased confidence
  • · Increased balance
  • · Improved ability to make decisions
  • · Improved time management
  • · Improved peace
  • · Improved day-to-day living
  • · Conflict resolution

 

In addition to a parent’s best friend, a Family Coach is a partner/sounding board/neutral 3rd party that helps the family and/or individuals identify their goals and help establish new routines and behaviors that help the family and/or individuals identify their goals and help establish new routines and behaviors that help the family achieve happiness, positive change and long lasting results.

Aftercare Program

GOLDEN LIVING AFTERCARE PROGRAM

The purpose of Life Coaching 4 Kids Center’s (LC4KC) Golden Living Aftercare program is to provide rehabilitative services to children in residential treatment that help them move from the treatment facility to a home or community-based setting.

Ensuring success following residential treatment starts with providing adequate support once children are returned home or placed with relatives or in other permanent homes.

Aftercare includes assessment, monitoring and ongoing management of therapeutic and clinical treatment services, as well as hard and soft support services for the family, teachers, and community members to support success in each area.

Our Golden Living Aftercare program was designed as a 120-day program with services provided in the home after the child’s return. Services in a residential facility may also be provided if necessary to avoid a possible disruption to the placement. 

A family assessment is conducted before or shortly after the child and family enter the program. Strengths and needs are assessed, and a comprehensive plan of care is developed and updated monthly.

Who is eligible for this program:

  • Male or female
  • Ages 6–20 years old

AFTERCARE SERVICES MAY INCLUDE

 

  •  Continued individual therapy for client
  • Family therapy
  • Parenting guidance, education and support
  • Behavior coaching
  • Mentoring for client
  • Assistance in accessing and maintaining community resources and supports for client      and the family
  • Educational  advocacy
  • Care on the residential campus as needed
  • Support in implementing and maintaining structure in the home
  • Assistance in gaining better knowledge and understanding of mental health issues
  • Encouragement of medication compliance
  • Juvenile delinquency support and resources
  • Ongoing  monitoring for safety and stability in the home.

MORE FAMILY SUPPORT SERVICES

Our community-based services exist to assist and support parents in their role as caregivers. Such services can take many different forms depending on the strengths and needs of the family, but our overall goal is to help enhance skills and resolve problems to strengthen families, create healthy minds and promote positive child development. 

We customize our Family Support Services to meet the unique needs of each family. Our programs address general population needs and assist groups, such as ethnic and cultural minorities; adolescent parents; kinship caregivers; children in foster care; families facing physical health concerns, untreated mental health issues, and treatment for substance abuse. At times, our services are comprehensive and at times they focus on a specific goal. 

Most recently we have seen an increase in:· 

  • Supporting children and families affected by divorce/separation (Co-Parenting, blended families, shared family care)· 
  • Supporting children and families affected by parental incarceration.· 
  • Supporting women with unexpected pregnancies· 
  • Supporting parents affected by unwelcomed child and adolescent behaviors at home and in a school setting. · 
  • Supporting families who have family members battling substance abuse. 
  • Supporting LGBTQ children and families
