Parent Weekends

Parent Weekends

You will experience a weekend of high-impact group and family sessions that lead to stronger family relationships. Families will benefit from the expertise of an organization with over 45 years of experience working with youth and families. During this three-day retreat, you will receive support, instruction, and encouragement as you share your stories, meals and lives together. Beginning on Friday evening and ending Sunday at 12 noon, this unique weekend get-away offers at-risk families a profound experience from which to move beyond mere symptoms and toward a place of significant healing and growth.

Learn how to lighten a heavy heart, warm a cold heart, soften a hard heart and heal a broken heart. Discover the power of one’s presence, either for good or for ill. Learn how to turn your family into a healing community and your home into “the safest place on earth.” Rawhide Intensive Family Weekends can help families in disarray gain a renewed vigor and the foundation for a successful future.

  1. Effects of trauma and a wounded spirit
  2. Connection between stress, fear, and anger
  3. Dynamics of a toxic personality
  4. The cause and effects of addictive strongholds
  5. Why some behaviors aren’t changing
