The Aspiro Program is designed with Families in mind
The Aspiro Group was created to help teenagers, young adults, and their families through challenges that can occur when various behavioral, psychological, or developmental issues are present. As a result, we operate our program from a clinically sophisticated and research-based model. Everything we do is intentionally designed to assist students and their families in creating lasting changes. We understand that every student is capable and unique and that each student deserves treatment that is specifically tailored for them in order to flourish.
“Therapy” at Aspiro
Let’s face it, “therapy” in its traditional form carries a stigma, especially among adolescents and young adults. In addition, traditional talk therapy alone does not often provide the desired outcomes for this population. That is why Aspiro was created; to provide a more effective therapeutic solution for adolescents and young adults. It is also important to understand that the outdoor environment allows for a more authentic opportunity for students to become vulnerable and create intrinsic behavioral changes.
The therapeutic foundation of Aspiro is built on a solution-focused and family systems model. Our clinical team develops treatment plans utilizing individualized therapeutic strategies associated with cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, EMDR, social thinking, collaborative problem solving, and positive psychology. The goal is to provide an accurate functional assessment and develop targeted skills in the areas of social, emotional, behavioral and executive levels of functioning.
“Therapy” at Aspiro is comprehensive, integrating traditional forms of talk therapy with a more hands-on, experiential approach. The entire program is intentionally designed to be therapeutic and provide meaningful outcomes that will more practically transfer back into home life. The distraction-free outdoor environment at Aspiro provides a variety of therapeutically healing components that allow therapists to develop and implement individualized treatment plans utilizing, but not limited to the following:
- Individual therapy
- Family therapy
- Group therapy
- In-vivo therapy
- Adventure therapy
