This sense of community contributes to the creation of a supportive environment where everyone plays a role in each other’s growth and well-being.

How DBT Will Help Your Daughter

Evangelhouse helps girls from Kentucky with DBT and other effective treatment strategies. As a parent, navigating the world of mental health treatments for your daughter can be both challenging and overwhelming. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based therapeutic approach that has proven effective in addressing a variety of mental health issues.

Understanding Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT):

DBT was developed by Dr. Marsha M. Linehan and is rooted in cognitive-behavioral therapy principles. It was initially designed to treat individuals with borderline personality disorder but has since been adapted to help people with various emotional and behavioral challenges. DBT places a strong emphasis on acceptance and change, aiming to balance seemingly opposing concepts to facilitate personal growth.

How DBT Can Help Your Daughter:

Enhanced Emotional Regulation:

DBT provides your daughter with practical tools to manage and regulate her emotions effectively. This skill is invaluable during the often turbulent teenage years when emotional ups and downs are a common experience.

Improved Interpersonal Skills:

Adolescence is a time of social growth, and DBT helps your daughter navigate friendships, family relationships, and other interpersonal dynamics. Strengthening these skills can lead to healthier, more fulfilling connections.

Coping with Distress:

Life is full of challenges, and DBT equips your daughter with the ability to cope with distressing situations without resorting to harmful behaviors. These coping mechanisms are essential for her overall well-being.

Increased Self-Awareness:

Through mindfulness practices, DBT fosters increased self-awareness in your daughter. This heightened awareness can lead to improved decision-making, increased resilience, and a better understanding of herself.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy offers a structured and comprehensive approach to mental health, addressing the unique needs of adolescents like your daughter. By focusing on emotion regulation, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness, and mindfulness, DBT empowers adolescents to navigate the complexities of adolescence with resilience and skill. Consider reaching out to mental health professionals to explore how DBT can be tailored to meet your daughter’s specific needs and contribute to her overall mental and emotional health.

A Therapeutic Boarding School Offering DBT Just For Girls

Evangelhouse DBT treatment center for Kentucky girls is a boarding school with therapeutic support like DBT just for girls grades 6-12. While we are based on traditional values, we keep up with modern issues girls face including tech-related issues. Today’s teen girl has so many more potential dangers than any proceeding generation. Just consider that eating issues, self-esteem issues, and identity issues usually begin soon before or during puberty.  Eating disorders like binge eating, bulimia, or anorexia can have a negative impact on a teen girl’s family relationships, her physical health, her outlook, and her attitude

Women are more likely than men to suffer from eating disorders. Add to this problem the invention of Instagram, TikTok, and other social media platforms and you have a recipe for disaster in today’s teenage girl.

At Evanglehouse, we see many teen girls trying to find their place in society and want to be recognized and appreciated for who they are. Many of the young ladies we work with at Evangelhouse are dealing with anxiety and insecurity, and the root cause can be often traced back to a social media app. Often, it’s the student’s peers at their school who are causing the trouble. We address comparing ourselves to others in group therapy, and why the image you see on Instagram might not be an accurate portrayal of that person’s life.

Immediate Availability for Kentucky Families

Immediate openings are available at our Residential Treatment Center for Kentucky Girls. We can usually accommodate you in as few as 24 hours if needed.

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.

Traditional Values for Modern Times

At Evangelhouse DBT treatment center for Kentucky girls, we have seen many issues over the years plague young girls in grades 6-12. Today’s issues are more profound than ever. It used to be that just picking a career, or finding a marital partner was the most a girl had to worry about. 

Today’s modern fast-paced world is much different. Girls go online to socialize and connect. They are in social competitions for likes on social media, and they are pressured to take photos showing their best sides in the public for followers. Online bullying and other cyber pressures are unique to this generation of girls. 

Below are 5 issues that are different today for girls:

“Fitting in”

From buying the right clothes to hanging out with the right people, fitting in today is harder than ever. Part of this is due to how publicly the typical teen lives thanks to the internet. Often, the pressure to fit in is too much. This is when the outside help of a therapeutic boarding school like Evangelhouse is warranted.

Motivation

Teenagers have gotten more secluded in their virtual worlds. No longer are teens motivated by getting their own car or a job. It’s often difficult to find motivation for a young teen that does not involve something related to a screen. At Evangelhouse Christian boarding school for girls, we help girls find that inner spark and re-discover who they are. 

Disrespect

Teens are surrounded by disrespect today. They see it in the movies they watch and the online games they play. It’s pervasive in modern music as well. Even female “role models” in modern pop music sing songs that are often disrespectful to themselves. At Evangelhouse Christian boarding school for girls, we help young ladies build self-respect through our positive peer culture.

Depression and Anxiety

Interacting mainly online has been linked to depression and anxiety. We look at photos of others online and it’s just human nature to compare. Being cooped up at home and cut off from the rest of the world only adds to the sensation.

Teens are suffering from depression and anxiety perhaps more than ever before. Many teens’ online “friends” will post only the best photos on vacation after taking multiple shots. This leaves followers feeling inadequate and that they are somehow missing out.

At Evangelhouse Christian boarding school for girls, we treat depression, anxiety, and a host of other issues. Individual, family, and group therapy interventions are structured within the Evangelhouse Lifeleaf™ system. This state-of-the-art system challenges students to work beyond symptom improvement. This unique integrative approach leads students to maturity, insight, and self-awareness. The blend of Christian values and professional clinical psychotherapy includes:

  • Professional assessment, diagnosis, and treatment planning
  • Weekly individual therapy
  • Weekly group therapy
  • Parent and family therapy
  • Weekly therapeutic emphasis groups
  • Weekly DBT Therapy skills group
  • The unique Evangelhouse stages of change system
  • Experiential family therapy retreats
  • EMDR Trauma Therapy is available as needed
