Model of Care
at Stetson School
Flexible, Family-Driven Treatment
The Stetson child-centered treatment model recognizes and treats each young man as a whole person. We understand the full impact of childhood experiences. We work with each child and his family to develop an individualized program within a safe and beautiful setting on 200 acres in Massachusetts.
- ACORN Treatment and Rehabilitation helps our youth create “new” selves by forming healthy and secure attachments to others, overcoming childhood adversity and traumatic experiences, building social competency and special skills, and developing self-regulation and behavioral control.
- 40-Week Core Foundation focuses on the completion of concrete elements of treatment, each of which serves as the building block for treatment beyond the foundation period in the least restrictive and most appropriate treatment setting.
- Systemic Training in the Recovery from Trauma (START) is based on an understanding of the pervasive effect of trauma on individuals, and incorporates interventions that support youth in overcoming trauma and adversity.
- Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) is provided by certified Stetson clinicians and incorporates trauma-sensitive interventions for both children and families.
