FamilyWorks® Interactive Therapy (FIT)
Clear Goals…Time-tested Tools… State-of-the-Art Technology
“I hear and I forget;
I see and I remember;
I do and I understand”.
With the extraordinary pressures facing all families, it is no wonder that stress pours out and often comes between family members. There are so many obligations and so little time carved out to reach life’s most important goal: Enjoying joy-filled days with your loved ones in peace and harmony. Over the past three decades, APPLE FamilyWorks has developed and refined FamilyWorks ® Interactive Therapy (FIT) designed specifically to help you reach those goals.
Professionally trained therapists and parenting educators will meet with you and/or family members in our specially designed FIT suite. Utilizing interviews and the most current, validated assessment tools, the therapist will guide you in establishing your goals. Under his/her guidance and support, you will learn and practice time-tested and effective skills and techniques that will help identify your strengths and build on them. Along the way, you may also identify and extinguish any patterns that may be causing you distress and frustration.
You will benefit from state of the art technology, choosing the emWave® stress relief system, audio-visual feedback and/or DVDs to track and celebrate positive emotions and behaviors. You will also benefit from easy to implement written materials to reinforce skills at work, play, and home.
FamilyWorks ® Interactive Therapy is particularly helpful in managing:
- Stress and distress
- Opposition and defiance
- Disrespect and entitlement
- Aggression and anger
- ADHD and ODD
- Depression, anxiety or fear
- Couples/family conflict
