Counseling

Counseling – ALS does not permit unconventional treatment modalities.  Prevailing research indicates that youth with behavioral or emotional difficulties can benefit from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) interventions.  ALS conducts CBT, MI and PTSD training with all staff and utilizes these interventions on a best practices approach.  All youth can attend CBT groups where they may learn how to identify thinking errors and common mental mistakes as a means of taking responsibility for their behaviors.   Only those clients with an identified need will participate in PTSD groups with the Clinical Director.
