The first of its kind, Embark by Calo offers highly specialized and transformational Therapeutic Family Intensives and Therapeutic Family Workshops with the adoptive family in mind. These interventions address the root cause of what keeps many adoptive families stuck in dysfunctional patterns that impact their functioning.
Embark by Calo also announced the hiring of Cecily Mitchell, M.A., LPC as the Embark Director. Ms Mitchell is a former Calo Teens Therapist and has particular interest in attachment and trauma. She will oversee Embark which includes designing and implementing customized therapeutic experiences for families that align to their particular needs. Calo's Chief Executive Officer, Alex Stavros said in a statement, "We are pleased to welcome Cecily back to our family. She will not only help us create treatment that is not only specialized, but also extraordinary. With that in mind, EMBARK’s week-long Family Intensive is our newest one-of-a-kind intervention. The Intensive provides therapy, assessment, intervention and planning that accelerates healing".
Embark Family Intensives are for;
- Families not yet ready or perhaps don't need or maybe can't or don't want to pay for residential or wilderness treatment, but still want best in class specialized help.
- Families currently in a residential program, but are stuck and need help refocusing on the root issues.
- Families after completing a stint in residential or wilderness that need a family therapy capstone.
Embark is meant to provide 6 months of therapy in 3 to 5 days.
Rob Gent, Calo's Chief Clinical Officer explains, "our specialty is healing the effects of adverse childhood experiences, particularly as it relates to families with adopted children. During Embark Family Intensives we equip families with the experience and understanding they need to heal their family". Mitchell added, "The Clinicians and Neuro-technicians guide the family to implement techniques for increased regulation, boundary setting, connection, and consistency. Canines and adventure therapy also play a role in helping a family explore how their life history and neurobiology play out in the present. Upon completion a report that includes summary findings, test results, and proposed plan of treatment with interventions and next steps is provided.
