The completion of the PuP program can be a time of mixed emotions for both parent and practitioner. For many it is a time of joyful celebration. It might be the first time the parent feels capable in their parenting role and have a belief that the children in their care are loved.
The closure session presents an opportunity for both parent and practitioner to reflect on the positive changes that have occurred over the duration of the PuP program. Changes in the quality of family functioning are acknowledged and celebrated.
