All Kinds of News for July 12, 2017
Summit Achievement has hired Beck Gee-Cohen (BGC consulting) as a consultant to help enhance their work with transgender and gender non-conforming clients. Beck, a presenter at the 2016 Gender Education DeMystification Syposium (GEMS) conference in Atlanta, is an expert in the field and an advocate for LGBTQ clients. As such, Beck has helped refine Summit Achievement's policies and practices to be as supportive and inclusive as possible in working with transgender and gender non-conforming clients. He conducted a dynamic training for Summit's direct care staff, worked with admissions, marketing, medical, leadership and clinical teams to refine the specifics and nuances of their work roles and best assure intentional, respectful practice.
Summit Achievement is uniquely set up to manage many of the logistical aspects with their Base Camp Adventure Therapy approach to Wilderness Therapy. The base camp has single occupancy bathrooms, mixed gender teams and a safe, supportive community. Please feel free to reach out to Summit Achievement's admissions department to talk about any specific cases or questions, Shannon Higgins, email@example.com

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.
