Treatment Approach

Treatment Approach

RTC believes in a well-rounded approach to treatment that supports safety, permanency and well-being for all our clients. On-campus programming, coupled with appropriate community services will provide for successful treatment. Parental involvement is encouraged in every aspect of treatment. We use an evidenced based, cognitive/behavioral approach to assist children in indentifying distorted and irrational thoughts that may be affecting their decision making and behaviors. Clients are provided treatment in both individual and group sessions and are given opportunities to try out their new skills in a safe environment. Behavioral based interventions are used to reinforce pro-social behaviors and to reduce any rewards that may be received from a display of negative behaviors. Clients are given psycho-educational information regarding their specific diagnosis and any medications they may be taking. All youth are provided Aggression Replacement Training. The on-campus school utilizes a strengths based approach for all clients that supports healthy decision making through positive reinforcement and rewards.
