Parental Participation

Parental Participation

Enrolling a child in treatment at Oxbow is, in a way, enrolling parents too. Boys get the most out of treatment when their parents involve themselves in their son’s therapeutic process. The goal is not only to help students become whole but to heal the family as well. Our parents are required to participate in family therapy and/or parent track that was designed by our Clinical Director, Todd Spaulding, to help families change any negative patterns that may be affecting their son’s issues. The parent track also allows one-on-one time with the therapist to answer any concerns or questions you may have and to help your son move forward in healing.

We strongly urge parents to help their sons accept responsibility for their behaviors and acknowledge the need for treatment. Students demonstrate commitment as they begin following their treatment plans. Families demonstrate their commitment by participating in weekly family therapy sessions and by completing therapy assignments that correlate with their students’ therapy work.

“The communication was perfect and we really felt like we were able to express our wishes and that they were incorporated into his treatment. You do exactly what you say you do, restore hope and rebuild trust. We are forever grateful for his time at Oxbow.” – Mom and Dad
