Emotional Growth Schools

Emotional Growth schools focus on character development, self-awareness, and appropriate socialization as teens move into young adulthood. An emphasis on accountability, self-acceptance, emotional transparency and improved self esteem are the focus of cathartic workshops, group treatment, and positive peer interaction.

Typically highly structured, emotional growth schools emphasize group therapy, and might augment the experience by individual therapy, which may combine some of the elements and activities of other treatment models. Students typically advance though the program stages with their peer group, which consists of 8 to 12 students who serve as “family away from home” for the student.

The typical length of stay for an emotional growth school is usually 18 months.
