Getting families involved
Families play an essential role in our work here at Chrysalis School. Our clinical staff works closely with both parents and students as part of the therapeutic environment. We communicate with families through Skype or phone calls and encourage carefully planned visitation both on and off campus.
Chrysalis families are also encouraged to participate in our travel program. We take service project trips to places like Glacier National Park and also offer an optional overseas trip where students can learn about other cultures.
We encourage parents to write a weekly letter to the Chrysalis student as part of our goal to strengthen family relationships. Family therapy sessions take place here at Chrysalis, including multi-family sessions that are conducted each Thanksgiving.
