Idaho DBT Treatment Center for Girls

DBT Therapy for Girls from Idaho with Personality Disorders and More

Evangelhouse DBT Treatment Center for girls from Idaho offers compassionate care for girls. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) has been found to be particularly effective for individuals, including girls, with various personality disorders. Girls with personality disorders often struggle with intense and fluctuating emotions. DBT places a strong emphasis on validating and accepting these emotions without judgment. This validation is crucial for individuals who may have experienced invalidation in the past, fostering a sense of understanding and acceptance.

DBT is known for its practical and skill-based approach. It equips individuals with concrete skills to manage and regulate their emotions, improve interpersonal relationships, and cope with distress. For girls with personality disorders, who may face challenges in emotion regulation and interpersonal effectiveness, these skills are invaluable in navigating daily life.

Mindfulness Techniques:

Mindfulness is a core component of DBT and is taught at Evangelhouse DBT Treatment Center for girls from Idaho. Through mindfulness techniques, individuals learn to stay present in the moment, observe their thoughts and emotions without becoming overwhelmed, and make informed choices. This can be especially beneficial for girls with personality disorders, helping them develop a greater awareness of their emotions and reactions.

Many personality disorders involve difficulties in forming and maintaining healthy relationships. DBT addresses this through interpersonal effectiveness training. Girls learn communication skills, boundary setting, and strategies for building and maintaining positive connections with others.

Girls with personality disorders may be at an increased risk of engaging in self-harming behaviors or experiencing suicidal thoughts. DBT includes specific modules that address these issues, providing girls with alternative coping mechanisms and a structured approach to managing crises.

Research has shown that DBT is effective in the long term for individuals with personality disorders. This is crucial for sustained improvement and preventing relapse. The comprehensive nature of DBT, addressing various aspects of mental health, contributes to its long-term effectiveness.

DBT’s effectiveness for girls with personality disorders lies in its validation-oriented approach, practical skill-building, mindfulness techniques, interpersonal effectiveness training, acknowledgment of dialectics, and the provision of a structured and supportive therapeutic environment. These elements work together to empower individuals to navigate the challenges associated with personality disorders and improve their overall quality of life.

    DBT Therapy Center for Girls Focused On Academics

    At Evangelhouse DBT Treatment Center for girls from Idaho, licensed teachers with advanced degrees administer a nationally accredited curriculum through the Louisiana Department of Education. Our unique and thorough therapeutic evaluation process guides education planning for each student. Student-to-teacher ratios accommodate learning difficulties presented by complex mood and behavior disorders. An integrative classroom day incorporates biblical teaching, group counseling, and academic work. We offer three educational tracts within our boarding school academic program. The individual attention we provide can support students who are advanced academically alongside those who may struggle.

    According to the National Center for Education Statistics, about 5% of high school students in the United States drop out each year. We know this affects a student’s future employment, earnings, potential health and so much more. We also know that students who have mental health issues at school are more likely to have poor school adjustment, fewer friends, more family discord, and future potential problems like drug and alcohol use, dropping out, and more. Recent studies also reveal that the mental health of teens gets worse as academic problems grow.

    Today is the day to take action to set your daughter’s academic path in the right direction. We can help get her back on track quickly and support her as she blossoms into the bright, high-achieving student she is destined to be. 

    At Evangelhouse, an integrative classroom day incorporates biblical teaching, group counseling, and academic work. We offer three educational tracts within our boarding school academic program. The individual attention we provide can support students who are advanced academically alongside those who may struggle. Our goal for academics is to quickly adjust to your daughter’s learning level which often improves as stressors and behavioral problems subside. 

    Helping Girls from Idaho

    The LifeLeaf system at Evangelhouse Christian boarding school for girls gives everyday living experiences of relationships with staff, peers, and parents. Dysfunctional coping skills and misperceptions of the student are often reenacted at Evangelhouse Christian boarding school for girls, and the girls have the opportunity to work through them with the help of skilled, competent, and caring treatment staff.

    Parents often prefer to find a program that can create some distance from their daughter’s current stressors. This is so she will focus on the issues at hand, and not focus on her boyfriend, friends, pets, or family while getting treatment. Also, the temptation to call a friend to “rescue” her is diminished with some distance. While we are located in Louisana, we have enrolled girls from all 50-states. 

    Spiritual growth is a unique aspect of the Evangelhouse DBT Treatment Center for girls from Idaho program. Students are urged to take notes during church sermons, establish personal bible study habits, and set aside time for prayer. 

    Every school day begins with a student-led group prayer and devotional reflection for the day. Before participating in a peer-led prayer group each night before bed, the group is given time for personal contemplation. Weekly group meetings are arranged to share challenges and offer support to the peer group. Each individual is also supervised and guided by staff members as they build healthy spiritual disciplines.

    Many young girls have found their place in the world and lived a life of faith thanks to the Evangelhouse experiential education and family counseling method. Our Christian life-coaching program provides adolescent girls the self-assurance they need to face challenges and succeed. We urge girls to apply biblical principles to real-life circumstances and to rely on these principles to assist them through their adolescent years and beyond.

    Evangelhouse DBT Treatment Center for girls from Idaho is a twelve-month, year-round school which means your daughter may be admitted at any point in the year. If you have any questions about the program please call us at 1-800-924-4012 or visit our contact page.

    This school literally has given my daughter her life back and has given us the tools to help her and herself into the future. This is a full circle, all encompassing program. From admission to graduation. Do not delete this school from your list! I almost did because it was far away...and...to be honest, I wasn't sure how I felt about a "Christian" school. Whether you are religious or not, don't be put off or think your child is going to be brainwashed. She's not! It is a part of the day and I thought my daughter would hate it (and so did she). But it turns out she found great comfort there and her faith! I thoroughly investigated this school. In addition to my own research, I also hired a company that researches and screens these types of programs. I also had my daughter's psychiatrist interview the director! I've done all the researching and investigating for you. Whatever your daughter's issues may be, I probably have them covered! My daughter's diagnosis' range from ADHD, Anxiety, High Risk Behavior, Adoption issues/trauma and psychosis. Do not waste your time. Don't wait for Spring or end of school or whatever timeline. Act now! The happiest day of my life was delivering her to the ECA. I actually slept for the first time in years. Knowing my daughter was finally getting the help she so deserved. Therapy, school, socialization, faith, responsibility, accountability, self-worth and confidence. We all ask or pray for help. Consider ECA as prayers answered.

    I graduated from ECA 4 years ago, and I can genuinely say that this place is truly amazing. It can and will help your daughter if she wants to put in the work. The staff and the girls I was with all made me feel like family and that I mattered. This place really saved my life, so if you are looking for a place that will help your daughter please send her here, I promise they will take care of her.

    We had a troubled teen. I found ECA online. I made a call and set up a visit. We were looking for a place that included God and biblical principles in their program. Now that our child has finished the program, WOW! Thank you ECA leadership. Every one on staff believes in the program. It shows! and it works!!

    This school has been an absolute Godsend for my daughter and our family. We realized a few months ago that she needed residential treatment. After an exhaustive search, we found the wonderful people at Evangelhouse. They do an amazing job keeping parents updated and are always available when we call. I have been impressed with the way that they are firm with the girls but also loving and caring. The process there is amazing, especially since it involves the family also. We were so happy to find a place that provides professional counseling with a Christian focus.

    Two years ago we were struggling to get our daughter on the right track. We had tried everything and knew that she would need to be placed in a residential treatment facility. We had searched for at least a year to find the right place. Were looking for a Christian, all girls, small, therapeutic program not too far from Texas. Somehow, someway, God lead us to the Evangelhouse website. We are so glad that we took his direction because it has meant a world of difference for our daughter, our family, our marriage, and our peace of mind! Evangelhouse has taken a once broken, low-self esteem, miserable, self-centered, hostile, angry, self-doubting teenager in crisis and changed her into a Christ-centered, selfless, self-loving, servant-hearted, mature, sensible, responsible, thoughtful young adult. ECA implements a program that strips each student down to the bare necessities in order for them to focus on what is truly important in life. I don't know where we would be without ECA. I now know what it is like to have a functional, happy, and peaceful family life.
