Parent University Webinar: Love Languages of Parenting

Reading Time: 1 minute

Watch as Newport Academy’s Denese Marshall, LPC, and host Kristin Wilson, MA, LPC, Vice President of Clinical Outreach, join with parents from across the country in our Parent University webinar series to discuss love languages of parenting.

Parent University Webinar

Denese is a Licensed Professional Counselor and Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor. As a Parent Coach for Newport Academy, Denese has experience supporting parents and families through transitions such as integrating back home following inpatient treatment. Through this process, families are able to learn new and effective communication skills to move forward more cohesively with a sense of empowerment and being understood.

In the video above, Denese Marshall discusses what sparks your teen to effectively parent through their own motivation. You will learn how to minimize friction to empower them to take ownership of their life and bow to capitalize on their own interests to help them develop an internal locus of control. You’ll also discover ways to disarm your adolescent in order to facilitate a more productive dialogue and reduce friction in the household.

Our Family-Centered Approach

At Newport Academy, the family is a primary focus of our treatment process as we recognize that sustainable healing for teens and young adults involves treating the entire family as a unit.  We support families while working to restore harmony, hosting family counseling to practice the coping and communication skills that are essential to building a healthy family. Through authentic connections with themselves, their peers, and their families, sustainable healing is possible; fear is replaced with love and disconnection is worked into connection—and the power of connection has never been more important than it is now.

Thus, we are dedicated to providing unwavering support for parents by gathering together as a community to offer resources, guidance, and tools for parents navigating through these uncertain times.
