A Safe Home Environment for Your Teen with Avoidant Personality Disorder
Does your teenager see him/ herself as socially inept, positive that peers find him/ her uninteresting and unappealing, suffering with critically low self-confidence and heightened self-consciousness? If so, your teen may well be struggling with Avoidant Personality Disorder.
We can help your child who is dealing with Avoidant Personality Disorder, showing undue sensitivity to what others think, and long-lasting feelings of inadequacy. This might lead to social inhibitions, being shy, cautious to not get involved in activities that would require interaction with others, particularly afraid of being scorned.
Wolf Creek Academy – Here to Help your Teen with Avoidant Personality Disorder
This Disorder is commonly diagnosed, but there isn’t a collectively agreed-upon treatment. Cognitive behavioral therapy and group therapy are often used, as might also be instruction in social skills.
We know that the last thing you want is for Avoidant Personality Disorder to rule your teen’s life, and our key to success will be to effectively confront the (negative) beliefs s/he holds!
Finding the right diagnosis and set of treatments will be imperative, to allow for success for a student that hasn’t been making headway in a traditional school setting. Our non-threatening, nurturing environment might be just the thing to ensure growth for your child.
A Hope and a Future for Every Child.
A faith-based therapeutic boarding school, we instill character, integrity, responsibility and accountability, all while giving your struggling teenager the opportunity to achieve a quality education.
Wolf Creek Academy’s family-model lifestyle offers a safe, nurturing environment that encourages teens to build positive relationships with authority figures as well as their peers. Our professional staff works with students to teach them invaluable life lessons and independent skills that will be beneficial for their future.
We educate the whole child from a Biblical worldview, assisting with their spiritual, physical and emotional development. We believe children should be built up, loved and nurtured with appropriate discipline, and that every student is unique with potential.
Counseling is provided for teens struggling with behavioral and emotional problems, and they meet with a licensed certified counselor at least once weekly. Daily group sessions address anger management issues and respect of authority, self-respect, or other relevant issues. The non-threatening atmosphere of this small group session allows them to learn from each other appropriate ways of managing their respective behavioral difficulties. Local psychiatric monitoring is available for students who require it.
Every student is dual-enrolled with the accredited Lighthouse Christian Academy, whose purpose is to support the mission of Wolf Creek. Whether a high achiever or moderately paced learner, children work at their own ability and appropriate level. We help students master curriculum knowledge via the Accelerated Christian Education system, utilizing daily classroom type settings, and providing any additional tutoring needed. Our therapeutic and nurturing environment is a safeguard for success.
Students thrive while having the opportunity to advance at their own pace; most often an accelerated pace which boosts self-respect, repairs self-confidence and promotes security for a successful future. Our program is designed to meet the learning needs of the individual child and each one is rewarded for their efforts.
So many teens have lost sight of a clear and positive future, but we see so many reach for their highest potential when given the tools and education to do so. Please call Wolf Creek Academy at (877) 477-9653 if you have tried everything, and are ready to see your problem child develop into a successful young adult.
