When hardship falls upon a family the reaction is often shock and despair. This is due to the fact the trouble is often not seen coming. A sudden loss of a loved one or the termination of employment for example. Even if it is only a feeling, we can see problems brewing in a family member. Changes in behavior and attitude or uncharacteristic bouts of emotional turmoil. If these concerns persist, seeking help for these family members is extremely important. Especially if there are negative influences they should distance themselves from. At Rites of Passage NW, our wilderness therapy programs in Seattle may be the answer you are looking for.
