FAILURE TO LAUNCH PROGRAM 

 

Penrith Farms is a failure to launch program in Washington State. We transition young adults into adulthood and independent living. As a working farm, we approach failure to launch as an issue of emotional growth and personal habits. So our goal is to work with students in altering bad habits and in improving resilience. The approach we use is different from the clinical model used at a typical failure to launch program. When students come to our program we involve them in real world situations on a working farm. Penrith Farms also offers a home-like environment for interaction between students and staff. This makes it safe for students to make mistakes and learn from them.

Many of our students arrive with a distrust for therapists and treatment facilities. That is why counseling at Penrith Farms happens in real time. Our counseling takes place in the moment as situations develop. Students at Penrith Farms develop instant awareness of their behavior and emotions. We provide coaching to help young adults recognize and work through their emotions. From this experience, students will learn essential life skills necessary for independent living. We still offer traditional therapy sessions to students that need it. Transportation to referred psychiatrists provided as necessary.
