Partial Hospitalization and Wellness and Resiliency
Ages: 8 to 14 years old
Two programs in particular offer intensive and individualized services that integrate therapeutic interventions and academic support; these are referred to as the Wellness and Resiliency Program (“Wellness”) and the Partial Hospitalization Program (“PHP”). Together they constitute Northern’s on-site after-school and summer youth programs.
On our campus, our children, youth and families have access to all of our features, including the gymnasium, activity center, Connell Field, and an in-ground swimming pool.
The majority of students referred for participation in the after-school and summer youth programs typically display behavioral challenges that manifest as multiple school suspensions, poor academic performance, impulsivity, and difficulty responding appropriately to school structure and authority figures. One of the primary objectives of Northern’s Wellness and PHP programs is to decrease behaviors that interfere with classroom learning and problem solving, and in doing so, improve educational outcomes.
Both programs offer:
- Individual therapy
- Family and group therapy skils
- Social skill development
- Homework help and tutoring
- Job counseling
