Residents are encouraged to participate in individual therapy with the facility clinician, daily therapeutic activities and group. Peer relationships are fostered. Individual therapy aimed at developing coping skills/peer relations/anger management/etc. and reinforced by earning an incentive that the resident and therapist have agreed upon. Behavior modification programs may also be developed by the facility clinician and clinical director to assist residents in shaping behavior as well, insuring progress.
Each week, the facility goals for the residents are reviewed and updated as needed. Goals group is conducted Monday-Thursday to encourage and support residents in meeting their treatment goals. Residents earn points for meeting their daily behavior goals and meeting other daily duties. As residents demonstrate increased responsible behavior and earn points accordingly, they can move up on their level and earn privileges based on their level. Residents attend weekly Equine therapy, self care groups and school with educational enhancement assistance. Numerous weekend activities are scheduled for example – art, community support groups, bowling, amusement parks, movies, independent living skills. All designed to maximize the potential of each foster youth.
