Individual Therapy

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy occurs at least once weekly, or more often if indicated, with a master’s level or licensed clinician. Clinicians most often utilize a behavioral and cognitive behavioral approach. Emphasis is placed on teaching the patient age-appropriate coping skills and then assisting in applying the skills learned—first in the milieu environment, then in the community during facility sponsored outings and ultimately in transitional passes with family members. All therapeutic approaches are geared toward assisting the patient to function in a less restrictive environment. For children presenting with past trauma, the evidenced-based treatment modality of Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) is most often utilized. We also offer family therapy and other programming to involve family members.
