Module 12: Closure
The completion of the PUP program can be a time of mixed
emotions for both parent and therapist. For many it is a time of
joyful celebration. It might be the first time the parent has
successfully completed anything in their lives, let alone concrete
evidence that they are in control of parenting.
The closure session presents an opportunity for both parent and therapist to reflect on the positive changes that have occurred over the duration of the PuP program. Changes in the quality of family functioning should are acknowledged and celebrated.
