Evangelhouse pioneered a treatment model that blends licensed behavioral healthcare with the structure of a traditional Christian boarding school.
When to Choose a Therapeutic Christian Academy
Many families that enroll their daughters at Evangelhouse therapeutic boarding school for girls have already sought outpatient therapy. However, outpatient therapy is limited in scope. A therapist has to be 100% reliant on what a child says in therapy to be an accurate portrayal of what is going on in real life. At Evangelhouse, therapists and students alike interact eating meals together and attending activities. We can see how your daughter is interacting with peers and coping with her frustrations in real-time.
So what makes therapy at Evangelhouse therapeutic boarding school for girls unique? While general therapy can help, our therapeutic boarding school focuses on the most effective methods to help troubled girls. These therapies can include equine therapy, CBT, DBT, group sessions, individual sessions, and family sessions.
Further, we can help our students try out new coping skills in the moment. This “in the moment” therapy has many advantages over outpatient therapy. The best time to practice a coping skill is when you really need to cope, not hours or even days later in a therapist’s office when emotions have returned to normal.
There are several reasons why people choose therapeutic boarding schools like Evangelhouse therapeutic boarding school for girls over other options. A positive peer group and a support structure usually help troubled girls make greater progress than a peer group that has a history of negative or harmful behaviors. With staff present 24/7, you can rest assured that your daughter will be supervised and will receive multiple positive, therapeutic interactions every day.
Evangelhouse therapeutic boarding school for girls in Oregon has been assisting families just like yours for many years. You will take an active role in your family’s recovery. Well-trained professionals and loving therapists of Evangelhouse will be there for you and your family. While it can be painful for parents to think about missing their child, keeping a teen girl in their existing circle of friends and influences can be more painful.
