The Thornwell Building Families Program is a community-based, intensive in-home program designed to address the needs of families. The Program provides services that build upon the existing strengths of families in order to reduce the stressors interfering with healthy family functioning.
Building Families creates impactful change and emotional strength in families by using researched and proven treatment methods in a personalized way. Parents learn how to set age-appropriate boundaries and maintain discipline without anger or violence. Thornwell Family Specialists use positive reinforcement, modeling, role playing, and other methods to teach lasting, effective parenting and communication skills.
