All Kinds of News for April 06, 2016
Summit Achievement (ME) marks a milestone with a "2Oth" logo in celebration of twenty years of helping young people and their families.
Throughout this 20th year, we will be highlighting the many staff, past and present, who have helped Summit be the special program that it is. We are grateful for everyone who has helped Summit evolve with a special shout out to our wilderness guides who work so hard to help young people. We are proud to say Summit pays one of the highest starting day rate for guides in the outdoor behavioral healthcare field.
Next month, we have two presentations of interest to those in the field.
On May 5, Nichol Ernst, Summit’s Executive Director & Clinical Director, will be co-presenting with Lauren Seltzer from the Grove School at the Boston IECA conference on a talk titled "Blurred Lines: Managing Boundaries and Ethics in an Ever-changing World."
On May 20th, Nichol will be presenting a Webinar for NATSAP members titled "A Case Study of Guide Appreciation and Becoming Compliant with Executive Order 13658".
Summit Achievement is, and always has been, guided by positive reinforcement and the power of choice. Our outcome-focused program employs effective therapeutic and educational principals. Through the process of engaging therapy, classroom academics and exciting wilderness expeditions, students experience the therapeutic benefits of outdoor adventure-based activities while learning to manage the demands of a more traditional environment. As an intentionally small, owner-operated program, we serve adolescent boys and girls, ages 13-20, from around the world.
