TITLE: “Trouble-Shooting Your Child’s Launch into Adulthood”
SPECIAL GUEST: Rohini Ross & Aaron Bernard
What does “failure to launch” really mean and why are we seeing so many teens and young adults struggling with transitioning to adulthood? Rohini Ross and Aaron Bernard describe Vive Family Support Program’s focus on helping teens and young adults with all kinds of transitions, whether they are transitions to adulthood, to college, or transitions home from an out-of-home program.
Vive has helped families with teens and young adults who have trouble with school or work, feel hopeless, have social anxiety or trauma. These kids and families can get through this time and come out stronger on the other side. Rohini Ross and Aaron Bernard join the program to help us all understand one of the most important transitions a person can make; the transition into a healthy and contented adulthood.
