Program Spotlight: Family Counseling Services
Parenting is not always easy. But family support and communication are essential ingredients to a promising future. IYR’s Family Counseling services have helped hundreds of Idaho families find positive solutions to family challenges.
The Idaho Youth Ranch is the only organization in the state to offer a nationally recognized counseling program called Functional Family Therapy (FFT), designed specifically to help at-risk youth and their families. The services are flexible and can be tailored to fit each family’s unique needs through in-home visits or office visits.
IYR’s Family Counseling program is available in northern Idaho (Coeur d’Alene) and southwest Idaho (Boise). The program includes a broad range of services to help the families of kids in our residential programs, both during treatment and to help reintegrate kids back into their communities and home life after leaving the program. What’s more, Family Counseling can be a critical first step in facing and resolving family struggles early on, preventing any need for out-of-home placement.
Our counselors use FFT to help families uncover and resolve deeply rooted issues, learn healthy ways to deal with conflicts, and move forward in a more positive direction—together.
