Family Day at NorthStar Clinical Services is fun and educational. This is a time when loved ones and support networks participate in workshops and engage and share in therapeudic discussions. Participation is for all family members and is strongly encouraged. Please note, family support members less than ten years of age will participate in a special playtherapy session, separate from the primary workshop.
A strong feature at NorthStar is utilization of sand tray techniques. This modality of therapeutic engagement helps family members discover hidden and buried family dynamics that frequently are at the core of experienced pain and trauma. This is an important and profound methodology in identifying emotional hurt experienced by those living in an addictive environment. Sand tray as a therapeutic intervention assists in identifying hidden feelings, removing emotional obstacles and mediates a more positive sense of living.
