On Friday, January 19th, seven youth and five staff from the Pressley Ridge Home Places program had the opportunity to attend Cirque Du Soleil Crystal in a beautiful suite at PPG Paints Arena thanks to Tickets for Kids. The privacy of a suite allowed youth with sensory issues or difficulty being in crowded places to enjoy an evening out.
For many years, Tickets for Kids has generously provided opportunities that spark interest and excitement in our kids and families, sending them to events that they would otherwise not have the means to attend. In just the past year, more than 300 Pressley Ridge youth and families enjoyed over 100 different events and activities.

The Pressley Ridge Social Research & Innovation Center is excited to announce the publication of a new article that discusses the results of a study examining alliances between families and residential treatment family workers. Published in the Children and Youth Services Review Journal, this article demonstrates that sharing working alliance feedback with residential treatment staff can be effective in improving working alliances with families. This study adds to our knowledge about the working alliance and helped to build the foundation for our Alliance Building: Learning to Engage (ABLE) model.
