Open Sky is pleased to share a recent presentation made by Mariah Loftin, Senior Clinical Therapist, for the Sky’s the Limit Fund Speaker Series on setting boundaries for struggling young adults. The presentation took place on October 21st.

Sky’s the Limit Fund’s mission is to transform the lives of youth in crisis and their families by providing access to wilderness therapy programs, coaching services to guide families during the transition home, and outreach to educate the community on the benefits of wilderness therapy. Open Sky has been proud to partner with Sky’s the Limit Fund, improving access to wilderness therapy for families who might not otherwise be able to afford it.

The Sky’s the Limit Fund Speaker Series provides education for families experiencing challenges with struggling teens or young adults and may be considering wilderness therapy. 

Mariah was honored to be the featured speaker for the fall speaker series and presented on the topic of how parents can set boundaries with their struggling young adult. The presentation may be beneficial to any parent faced with similar challenges in their family as well as those trying to establish if outside support such as wilderness therapy may be necessary.

Mariah’s presentation highlights: 

  • Common challenges parents face as adolescents transition to young adulthood 
  • Why it is essential to hold boundaries in the face of these challenges 
  • How to have conversations that establish a connection with your child while discussing and implementing boundaries 
  • When to acknowledge that outside help is needed 
  • Self-care tips for parents navigating these challenges 

In the presentation, Mariah also provides feedback to questions posed by parents, responding to real-life scenarios with valuable insight and knowledge.
