How are we different?

Unlike most treatment programs or schools, we DO NOT use a behavioral modification approach. Our goal is not to focus on the behaviors (rewards or consequence), but what causes those behaviors – their feelings or self-concept.

Empathy and attunement are the most powerful agents of change. If your son feels that we understand him, and can actually feel what he is going through, then he may believe he is worth the effort we put forth in his behalf. This creates an experience that allows the relationship to be the agent of change.

We accept and teach our students by active listening, reflection, empathy, permission to feel, and giving without return. Unconditional care, attunement, and validation go a long way for the internaldevelopment of our students.

Vulnerability can dispel the cultural myth that it is weakness and argues that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage. When students and families understand this and apply it, it can reduce time in treatment, significantly.
