At Second Nature we believe that ongoing support and education for our families is paramount to the overall success of each child’s journey.

Along with encouraging each family that we work with to engage in their own therapy, parents are invited to attend our Parent Workshops. This therapeutic, intensive one-day workshop will provide education and support to the families of students currently enrolled.

A Second Nature therapist and Parent Coach present on a variety of parenting topics, facilitate multifamily group meetings, and answer parent questions. Parents will learn and practice effective communication approaches that parallel the tools the students are learning in the field. Time is always provided to strategize with parents around the current challenges they may be facing.

The workshop provides parents the opportunity to meet and connect with other parents who have faced similar challenges.  Parents are able to share experiences and offer support to one another in a safe and hope-filled environment.  Parents also have the opportunity to meet with our Field Instructors, learn about daily life in the field and how the instructors support the students in learning and practicing new skills.

An Invitation and registration link is emailed 5‐6 weeks in advance of each Parent Workshop to current Second Nature families. Additionally, information is posted on our Second Nature Facebook page to keep alumni parents informed of dates. Please see the Second Nature Parent Workshop dates scheduled below:
