Clearview’s Unique Residential Treatment for Girls Combines Individual, Group, and Family Therapy
How We Help Struggling Girls with Focused Treatment
Girls in our care at Clearview receive an individual treatment plan aligned with their medical, emotional, and psychological needs. Our expert and seasoned therapists care for over 20 girls, ages 12-17, in our therapeutic boarding school—a gorgeous mountainside facility once a prestigious corporate hunting lodge. The clinical staff includes a psychiatric specialist, a primary care physician, a dentist, licensed psychotherapists, teachers, mentors, and residential care staff.
At Clearview’s residential treatment for Girls, we help troubled girls overcome difficult emotional issues such as attachment disorders, attention deficit, eating disorders, anxiety, depression, self-destructive or antisocial behavior, and issues involved with adoption and abandonment issues.
Our licensed therapists assess each student to determine the nature and extent of her issues. The girls receive constant feedback and mentoring in their thinking and actions through around-the-clock interactions with our trained staff. We also use Art Therapy to help the student learn to communicate thoughts and deep emotions without using words.
Our staff has over 60 years of combined experience in therapy with adolescents. And our licensed therapists assess each student to determine the nature and extent of her issues. Individual Therapy methods include Trust-based Relational Intervention, Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Therapy such as EMDR and Lifespan Integration, Reality Therapy, and Neurofeedback and Craniosacral Therapy treatments.
Clearview Girls Academy students participate in Individual Therapy in one sitting or over multiple short sessions during the week. Participation in Group Therapy twice weekly is highly effective with adolescent girls, including specialty groups such as adoption. Family therapy occurs during family visits and over the phone.
We encourage families to come and visit their daughters after an appropriate number of family therapy phone calls. When you visit Clearview’s therapeutic boarding school for girls, one of our therapists will participate in family therapy with your girl, giving her behavioral goals to work on during your visit.
Clearview Offers Valuable Interactive Parent Workshops
Here at Clearview Girls Academy, we believe in healing the entire family. Mental health issues don’t just take their toll on the individual. They can strain the entire family. Because of this, we offer ways in which the whole family can recover, including Weekend Parent Workshops.
Several times a year, the therapists of Clearview Girls Academy provide a weekend workshop for the girls’ parents in our therapeutic boarding school for the girls program. The first two days focus on supporting the parents by providing tools for self-awareness, relationship-building, and communication.
On the last day of the parent workshop, we include their daughter in the workshop. We will work on the tools and techniques discussed in the previous two days. We also discuss how these tools can be implemented to help the entire family with its healing. These tools are also crucial when your daughter graduates from Clearview Girls Academy and reenters her regular life back home.
At its core, a weekend at a Parent Workshop encourages parents to begin their recovery from the stress of self-medication or mental health issues occurring in the family. It is also an opportunity to build a foundation that can support parents step by step on their family-recovery journey.
Just as the child must get the recovery help they need to restore themselves, the family also needs some therapeutic help. Regarding the parents, a parent workshop at our therapeutic boarding school for girls is a great way to begin this restoration.
We also provide Parent Workshops nationally in Arizona, California, Texas, and other states where parents can come and learn from the finest family experts.
Understanding the Importance of Full Family Recovery
The overall goal of our residential treatment for girls is to assist the parents in building whole and healthy families.
Medical and recovery professionals have long agreed that self-medication and mental health are not just individual diseases but also “family diseases.” That is why recovery must expand beyond the individual girl who is struggling. A family disease needs a family recovery.
One way to achieve this with parents is through participating in focused Parent Workshops. Here, we work on techniques that will help parents as their daughter continues in recovery. We also review what it will look like when their daughter leaves our recovery center and therapeutic boarding school for girls.
Transforming the Future of Your Family
For over 20+ years of residential treatment for girls at Clearview, we’ve known that many factors support adolescent mental health struggles; unfortunately, as parents, most of these things are simply out of our control. However, finding help is in your control.
Consider the many tools and resources we provide your daughter and your family at our therapeutic boarding school for girls. We truly want to help your daughter recover–and see your whole family become healthy. For more information, please call Clearview Girls Academy today at (888) 416-2144.
