Family Intervention Program (FIP)
The Family Intervention Program provides immediate assessment, support, and crisis counselling to individuals, couples, and families experiencing an event or situation that is overwhelming or traumatic for the family. The goal of the program is to strengthen the family unit by empowering family members to improve the quality of their personal and family lives.
We Can Help With:
- Couples/Marital Relationship Breakdown
- Step-Family/Blended Family Challenges
- Child/Teen and Parent Conflict
- High-risk Child/Adolescent Behaviours
- Family Crisis
- Any other significant change or loss within the family that is creating a high degree of stress.
Crisis counselling allows individuals and families to face the emotional pain of the crisis and move forward in healthy ways to cope with the stressful situation.
When a crisis occurs within a family it can cause confusion, frustration, change of behaviour of individual family members, and feelings of hopelessness that can lead to family breakdown. Envision counsellors believe that it can also be an opportunity to explore family dynamics by focusing on strengths and abilities. By building on these families can feel more connected and improve overall family function.
We believe every family has strengths when facing challenges. Issues can present themselves in many ways, including differences in expectations, boundaries, and communication styles. Family counselling analyzes root issues, provides options, and introduces tools necessary to assert needs and feelings effectively to improve family dynamics.
All services are offered free of charge and those families that are interested in support from the Family Intervention Program may directly refer themselves to the program by calling one of Envision’s offices in Estevan, Carlyle, Oxbow or Weyburn or contact us through our Ask A Counsellor button located throughout this site.
