After months and often years of struggles and challenges that require help and guidance, clients may begin the Launch program feeling dependent, confused, or unsure about their next steps. This turning point is the greatest opportunity for lifelong change and the one that requires great commitment and development of autonomy. Launch Centers provide the opportunity for clients to benefit from structure and support that facilitates personal ownership of decisions and discovery of purpose. Clients are expected to come to each therapeutic and educational session with an intention and desire to self-assess. This consistent self-monitoring will enable clients to build metacognition and evaluative skills that will assist in identifying behaviors that either hinder or foster achievement of goals. Clients are expected to be independent and resourceful; we are here to provide the structure, human interaction, and professional guidance, and clients are expected to take the initiative in daily, weekly, and monthly actions toward personal goals.
- Clients will come to Launch with requested materials identified in contract so personalized plans can be maximized to fit client’s goals and be achieved in appropriate length of time
- Clients will come prepared each day based on previous day’s or week’s requirements and progress
- Clients will take ownership of their goals and achievement by being active through inquiry, discussion, and feedback
- Clients will limit electronic use to working only on computers for academic, career, and/or employment-based activities
