One of the most devastating things for a parent is realizing that your child is exhibiting signs of helplessness, powerlessness, depression, thoughts of suicide, rebellion, or lost hope. A second feeling, nearly as devastating, is feeling as though you can’t do anything to help them. You want to be there for them but don’t know exactly how to. Or maybe their acts of rebellious behavior are pushing you away. 

This course goes beyond the basics of counseling by addressing ways to support your young person and the family through times of transition and when one or more family members are stuck. In this course, you are provided tangible tools and suggestions that come from real-life youth and adults who have walked through similar trials. We want to encourage and empower you to come alongside your young one in this journey they are on, but it is imperative to do so with healthy tools and strategies at your fingertips. Take the first step on your family’s healing journey and join us as we navigate the uncharted water of futility together, and find hope and healing through the process.
