When working with children, teens, and young adults, we strongly emphasize the values of honesty and empathy. We believe that we can better communicate with them by being as transparent as possible.
During counseling sessions at Southern Cities Residential & Family Services, Inc., we handle a lot of concerns and we talk to a widely diverse young community in terms of cultural and economic backgrounds. While they may face different issues, they all have one thing in common – they need guidance. As much as possible, we provide them the supportive guidance while also building their skills for responsible decision-making which will have a significant impact on their future.
We listen and we seek to understand. More importantly, we find ways to help through counseling sessions both privately, with their parents, or in a youth group setting.
