Valleycrest Day Treatment provides an intensive therapeutic intervention program for children in grades 2-5. The classrooms are located in Pembroke and Renfrew. The program focuses on meeting the individual mental health and educational needs of the students. The program’s primary goal is to assist children to develop and use coping skills to better manage any emotional and/or behavioural difficulties. The program is considered an extension of the child’s community school.
All Valleycrest students will participate in clinical groups and follow the Ontario Educational Curriculum. The academic components will be individualized and based on the child’s grade level and learning abilities.
All Valleycrest students and families will participate in therapy. The systems approach allows us to use an eclectic approach to therapy. Modalities used include:
- Collaborative Problem Solving
- Solution Focused
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
- Brief Narrative
- Play therapy
- Group therapy
- Community development
The children and families will participate in family, individual and group therapy, as well as intensive in home services as recommended by their therapist.
