We are a girls-only therapeutic boarding school for trauma and related issues. Trauma-related diagnoses including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can be life-changing.
PTSD is a debilitating syndrome that develops when a scary, shocking, or life-threatening incident is viewed or experienced. Girls with PTSD often have experienced a trauma where someone has been injured, or a near-death (or perceived near-death) experience was encountered.
This traumatic occurrence causes persistent, fearful thoughts, memories, and flashbacks in the child, teen, or adult. When this issue affects adolescents or teens, it frequently develops into a chronic condition. The likelihood that an adolescent girl would acquire PTSD is determined by their closeness to the incident, the degree of the trauma, the teen’s resilience, their coping abilities, and the support services accessible to them.
When a Therapeutic Boarding School for Trauma is Needed
PTSD in a teenager can be caused by a variety of circumstances, including:
Abuse from a parent or loved one
Abuse of a sexual nature
Abuse of emotions
Personal assaults that are violent (kidnapping, torture, being held captive, mugging)
