The Child Program is designed to support the unique needs of children aged 6 to 12 years. The program is designed to assist children with the following:

  • Emotional dysregulation
  • Poor impulse control, hyperactivity
  • Dangerous behaviors
  • Cognitive rigidity; lack of social skills
  • Depression, sadness, hopelessness
  • Persistent worry or panic attacks
  • School refusal
  • Fire-starting
  • Substance use

Treatment involves resolving the symptoms leading to hospitalization, crisis planning, and engaging the family in the appropriate continuing care needs. Communication and treatment interventions are geared toward the developmental stage of the child. The program uses a safety system to teach the children to develop an internal sense of safety and control.
