Presentation Description: This session will help school personnel better understand the therapeutic resources available to serve struggling teens whose needs are beyond the capacity of their school and be able to guide parents as they explore those resources. An overview of the range of therapeutic programs will be provided: traditional boarding schools that have strong support programs; wilderness programs; therapeutic boarding schools; residential treatment centers; acute care programs and how they differ from each other. Participants will share with each other some direct tips/strategies regarding what to look for in the child’s behavior patterns, how to set the stage for collaboration, the roles of the Educational Consultant, the parent, the child, and the school/counselor, and logistics.
