Treatment / Therapy at Lakeside
Lakeside offers a variety of cognitive and behavioral treatment modalities designed to help students achieve high standards of empathy and concern for others and to behave in ways that help or benefit other people.
Lakeside follows an evidence-based sociological model that uses positive peer influence to elicit and reinforce appropriate behavior.
The treatment components employed for each student reflect the needs that have been determined by trained staff using clinical, behavioral, and historical information for each student. Treatment components are multi-modal, content specific, and dynamically oriented in approach and application. Treatment at Lakeside involves oral and written work that is integrated with individual and group processing, skills building, and family therapy, in a normative community setting.
Licensed therapists lead Lakeside staff members in providing the following evidence-based core models:
- Aggression Replacement Training
- Chemical Dependency Treatment
- Trauma Therapy
- Family Therapy
- Individual Therapy
- Girls Circle (strengths-based skill building)
- The Council (group approach to relationship building strengths)
- Juvenile Sexual Offender Treatment
In addition, a contracted psychologist works with students individually and in groups to strengthen social skills, enhance relationship development, and improve innate personal value systems.
