Dr. Daniel Sanderson presents “Developmental Vacation” on teen behavioral health

Delta, Utah (August 13, 2014) – White River Academy boarding school now features monthly webinar installments, offering a litany of seminars from guest speakers. The webinars will be part of a CEU event featuring healthcare professionals speaking on various mental and behavioral health issues, open to both professionals and parents.

The inaugural webinar will feature clinical psychologist Dr. Daniel Sanderson presenting his vacation treatment model, an out-of-the-box approach to treating teen problem behaviors, educating both therapists and parents on effective strategies for disrupting the adolescent’s “developmental vacation” contributing to their issues.

“White River is one of the few programs that actually focuses on the skills and paradigm shifts it takes for a boy to become a man,” said Robin Reber, Admissions Director and Outreach Specialist at White River Academy.

“There is a peaceful calm at White River. There is strength, order, dignity, respect, purpose, insight and hope. These young men come from good families who earnestly desire a better path for their sons and entrust their children with us. That is a trust we protect and cherish,” said Reber.

About White River Academy

White River Academy provides a safe and structured environment for troubled boys from ages 12 to 17. Through utilizing experiential and developmental treatment models, boys dealing with behavioral, mental and substance abuse issues are able to identify, as well as receive treatment for negative behavioral patterns.

The program creates a personalized academic curriculum for each individual student, in addition to treating common disorders in teens such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Oppositional defiant disorder
  • Mood disorders and much more

A common element in each student’s academic curriculum is an emphasis on autonomous project management and service within the community. White River Academy is a therapeutic boarding school offering full time classrooms, full-time teachers and preparation for life after graduation. Treatment includes traditional forms of psychotherapy such as cognitive and behavioral therapy. However, White River Academy does more than treat the boy’s mental, behavioral or substance abuse issues. White River Academy instills strong character values and equips the boy with the skills needed to become a contributing member of society.

Students are encouraged to examine the actions and thought processes in therapy, which contribute to their condition. Once a student begins treatment, he will find healthy alternatives to dealing with his issues. Students will focus on positive interaction among each other to build interpersonal skills and increase their chances for success after graduation. If you have any questions or are interested in enrolling your teen in White River Academy boarding school, contact the admissions team today at 866-520-0905.
