Second ShelterWhen is it necessary to send your child away for residential therapeutic treatment? How do you choose the right program? Will the program even work? What happens if it doesn’t? In answering these questions and many others, Second Shelter gives a comprehensive overview of therapeutic boarding schools and residential treatment facilities in a format that is readable and accessible for counselors, educators, and parents alike. The book examines which adolescents are best served in these environments as well as the different therapeutic approaches provided. It also takes a practical look at the costs involved with these schools, how long the programs take, how effective they are, and how parents and educators can help students transition back to traditional day schools when the treatment process is complete. In addition, parts of the book are dedicated to residential school safety and academic standards. Written with compassion and insight by authors who are both educators and parents of children who have recently been enrolled in these types of schools, Second Shelter is an essential guide for any family that is considering residential therapeutic treatment for the safety and health of its adolescents.
