ECHO MALIBU Youth Treatment Center
Family participation can be important to the long-term success of any youth. At ECHO we encourage family involvement as much as possible during the course of treatment. Parents who are unable to come to our facility for any reason may participate in most of these activities by phone or other means. We offer several modalities specifically to promote family health.
Parenting Effectiveness Training (P.E.T.)
Parents and families are encouraged to participate in ECHO’s Parent Effectiveness Training program, facilitated by a P.E.T. Certified trainer. Created by Dr. Thomas Gordon, this proven parenting method promotes new and effective communication and problem-solving techniques that assist families in creating a more productive family dynamic.
Individual Family Therapy
Since the family dynamic is so instrumental in creating safe and healthy environments for youth to achieve and maintain their sobriety, each family at ECHO will receive individual family therapy with a licensed family therapist. Family therapy will focus on family dynamics that promote the healthy expression of behaviors and emotions that encourage openness and result in healthier families.
Multi-Family Therapy Group
Families participating in treatment at ECHO will participate in multi-family education and process groups. These weekly groups have been shown to increase positive outcomes by allowing families experiencing similar concerns to process and learn from each other. Family Education sessions that focus on a variety of topics relevant to early recovery issues will also be presented.
