Description
NAFI-NY is committed to the professional growth of its staff through on-going training and staff development. This is a challenging and rewarding opportunity to become a part of a dynamic, diverse, friendly and committed team.

The Parenting with Love and Limits re-entry model is an evidence-based model used to ensure that families are prepared to handle the return of their child home from residential placement more effectively and in an expedited manner. The youth and his/her family participate in very directed, short-term structural family therapy to learn new and healthier ways to relate. This service is available for youth who are in residential facilities and have a goal of return to parent or guardian. PLL targets family engagement and coaching, which begins the work from the onset of placement and mobilizes community resources to support the youth in his/her return home. It is the first program of its kind to combine parenting management groups and family therapy into one continuum of care to quickly engage resistant parents.
