A service offered by the psychologist and the social worker.
We strengthen the young parents of children with disability at the first stages of the child’s development. Our aim is to support them so as to cope with the experience of losing a healthy child. We help in the development of the relationship between the parents in order to be able to deal with the demanding care for a child with disability. Through the counseling procedure we guide parents to handle their siblings and significant others. We support the couple in crisis situations such as a divorce, hospital treatment, death, etc.
We organize parent groups meetings aiming at bringing together people who have gone through the common experience of raising a child with disability. Through group counseling sessions we prepare the ground for the parents to express their feelings, share thoughts and mutual experiences and to find a place to express and unburden themselves.
We offer parents the opportunity for short-term individual counseling or couple counseling sessions. If a parent wishes to seek personal space to express his/her feelings, difficulties, his/her anxiety about the child with disability, or about his/her relationship with the other child, then he/she can come to us.
