Parent Seminars

In addition to the other parent components of the treatment process, Star Guides hosts parent seminars three times per year and invites parents of current students to travel to the program to participate in the seminar, the field activities, and face-to-face family therapy with their child.

2024 seminars are scheduled for the following dates:

March 24th-25th

June 2nd-3rd

September 22nd-23rd


4:30 PM – Gather at Star Guides for greetings and introductions.
5:00 PM – Dinner served.
6:00 – 8:00 PM – Interactive presentation by Doc Dan and other therapists. Topics will vary but usually focus on treatment philosophy with Q&A about anything the parents would like to discuss.
* For parents unable to attend in person we offer a Zoom option to join in the discussion.


Monday morning attendance at the solstice/equinox event is arranged with the therapist and is available for families ready to engage in family therapy sessions.
8:00 AM – Meet therapist at Star Guides for transport to the event site. Depending on our location, travel may take from 45 minutes to 1.5 hours.
9:00 AM (or later depending on travel time) – Family therapy
10:00 AM or later – Equinox/Solstice event
12:00 – Lunch
Between 1:00 and 2:00 PM the event is concluded.

Parents will want to make travel plans based upon arriving back in St. George from the event at around 3:30 PM
