Therapeutic Program

Small Group Counseling
We all need to function appropriately in society. The Woodhouse program builds interpersonal skills in parallel with academics.

At Woodhouse your child participates in small-group counseling ses-sions at least once a week. These sessions are run by our school psychologist and social worker in collaboration with each student’s therapist and psychiatrist. We draw from cognitive and behavioral theories and therapeutic approaches such as:

  • Behaviorism/Mindfulness
  • Collaborative Problem-Solving (CPS)
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • Ecological Theory
  • Strengths Perspective

We also address development in:

  • Social Skills
  • Self-Advocacy
  • Executive Functioning Skills
  • Emotional Regulation
  • Bracketing

In addition, our school psychologist and school social worker are on campus full time and are available to your child throughout the school day.

Woodhouse creates a genuine sense of community where everyone is there for each another. Your child will feel safe, secure and nurtured as we all work together on both an individual and school-wide basis. This helps alleviate the issues that have previously prevented your child from successfully moving forward:

  • Students and staff address each other on a first name basis
  • Continuous student/staff interaction between classes and lunch
  • Staff facilitates students who need greater assistance interacting
  • Class trips offsite into the community to places of interest
  • Weekly community seminars to share thoughts, appreciations, and acknowledgements
