Weekly Group Therapy

  • The four concepts: Safety, Emotions, Loss, and Future (S.E.L.F) psycho-educational group therapy is designed to provide our youth – and staff – with an easy-to-use and coherent cognitive framework that can create a change momentum.

    1. No one gets better or works well without having Safety. Safety means physical safety, emotional safety, social safety and moral safety. Safety is where we always start and end. If you are not safe, you can't get better.​

    2. Managing Emotions is the step that helps us to know what we are feeling and to handle our feelings in a way that doesn't hurt ourselves or others.

    3. Loss is the step that helps us acknowledge and grieve the painful things that have happened to us in a safe way and move to a healthy future.

    4. Future is the step where we look at our choices in creating a better personal future and to make the world a better place.

Art Therapy

  • Many youth in our care have experienced traumatic events or challenging circumstances. Our art therapy sessions can aid in the healing process by helping them process and make sense of their trauma, reduce anxiety, and develop coping strategies. Creating art can serve as a tool for empowerment and resilience-building. Our art therapy sessions also offer a safe and non-verbal outlet for our youth to express and communicate their emotions, thoughts, and experiences. It allows them to explore and process difficult or complex feelings that they may struggle to express verbally.
