All Kinds of News for February 08, 2017
Stetson School, a new program to All Kinds of Therapy, is a nationally accredited, fully licensed, SEVIS approved residential/education program located in Barre, Massachusetts. The program serves males, ages 9-22, specializes in the treatment of problematic sexualized behavior and offers behavior disorder treatment services as well.
Stetson was founded in 1899 as an orphanage for boys, under the name of Stetson Home, and continued to serve youth in that capacity until 1960. At that time, Stetson Home began to provide treatment for emotionally disturbed boys. In 1978, Stetson Home became Stetson School when it was approved by the Massachusetts Department of Education as a Chapter 766 Private Special Education School, while still serving emotionally disturbed male youth. In 1990, Stetson began to treat male youth who had a history of sexually abusive behaviors and, over time, earned a reputation of expertise in the juvenile sex offender field.
In 2013, Stetson affiliated with the Seven Hills Foundation of Worcester, Massachusetts, whose mission is to "...promote and encourage the empowerment of people with significant challenges so that each may pursue their highest possible degree of personal well-being and independence." Today, as mentioned above, Stetson's programs serve male youth, ages 9-22, with a variety of behavior and social-emotional issues. Treatment is provided within tracks specializing in problem sexualized behaviors or behavior disorders. Stetson's ACORN model of care is an integrated, evidence informed treatment model that is rooted in attachment theory, is trauma informed, and focuses on individual needs, strengths, and interests. Treatment is provided within a relational milieu that is family driven and family supportive.
