THERAPEUTIC AFTER CARE
What to Expect
Many programs that claim to be therapeutic simply wave goodbye at the end of the session and wish you well, others offer a sort of "cheerleading" follow-up to touch-base, (more like a call from a camp-buddy than a therapeutic intervention).
RESET IS DIFFERENT
Our clinical intern staff ARE the 24/7 camp counselors, the camp-buddies of the teens in our programs. They serve as the positive role-models for the campers, the shoulder to cry on, the listening ear always at-the-ready. They participate in much of the group and individual therapy sessions and work directly under the supervision of the Clinical Director .
Throughout your teen's camp experience, they will interact and build rapport with several ofour camp staff, many of whom are PhD candidates and/or clinical interns. These are the staff with whom they will cook, play games and sing songs.
During the Family Weekend, your camper will have the opportunity to select a first and second choice for theAfter Care person to connect with once they return home.
Establishing After Care communication with all parties involved and/or concerned is vital to the continued success of your teen. We suggest parents, doctors, personal counselors and therapists be involved in any planning and goal-setting.
We encourage the campers / parents to select a member of the camp staff that will be fun but strong to help hold them accountable.
Typically, our after care is provided once a week during a time most convenientfor both parties, and it’s carried out via video conference.
We encourage the campers to use Skype, FaceTime, Zoom, etc., or whatever works best for them.
The whole point of the weekly follow-up is to keep your teen on track by reconnecting them to the person and the time when they were successful.
