Therapeutic School Offering DBT for Girls from Maryland
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a specialized form of cognitive-behavioral therapy designed to help individuals develop skills for coping with overwhelming emotions, improving interpersonal relationships, and creating a life worth living. Evangelhouse recognizes the efficacy of DBT in addressing the multifaceted challenges that girls may encounter during their teenage years.
Strengthening Interpersonal Effectiveness:
DBT at Evangelhouse places significant emphasis on enhancing interpersonal skills. Building and maintaining healthy relationships are vital components of mental health, especially during the formative years. Through group therapy, individual counseling, and skill-building exercises, girls learn effective communication, boundary setting, and conflict resolution.
Creating a Life Worth Living:
Evangelhouse’s DBT program goes beyond symptom management; it aims to help girls create a life worth living. By fostering a sense of purpose, self-worth, and accomplishment, the program empowers girls to envision a positive future. Through goal-setting and support, they develop the tools needed to overcome obstacles and build a foundation for long-term mental health.
Professional and Compassionate Staff:
The success of Evangelhouse’s DBT program is deeply rooted in its team of dedicated and compassionate professionals. From licensed therapists to experienced educators, the staff is committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment where girls can heal, grow, and thrive.
Helping Girls from Maryland
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 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 all-girls, private boarding school 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.
