Deciding Whether a Therapeutic Boarding School is Best for your Child

Deciding whether a therapeutic boarding school is the best place for your child is among the hardest decisions that a parent of a troubled teen or child must make. While home therapy often seems like a better option, teens are often reluctant to engage in therapy and may refuse to interact with a therapist under normal circumstances. Also, home therapy sessions are often short and only occur on a weekly basis, making it difficult to foster lasting progress. At Turning Winds Academic Institute, students receive regular one-on-one attention with counselors and engage in daily group therapy sessions. In the structured environment of a boarding school, these children are given the opportunity to truly alter their behavioral patterns and begin to achieve academically and socially. All of the school’s therapists are fully licensed and qualified professionals, taking the guesswork out of finding a trusted professional locally. At the Turning Winds Academic Institute, you can rest assured that your child will receive the utmost in psychological care. Many parents who try to obtain quality at-home therapy services for their children see little change resulting from the sessions, which can be explained by many factors. In addition to the aforementioned constraints, at-home therapy may not be the best option for your child’s specific needs and expectations. Some teenagers benefit more from group therapy or even family therapy sessions. With the small class size of the Institute, we are able to effectively engineer a therapeutic approach that is tailored to the individual child.
