Greenbrier Academy for Girls, an all girls therapeutic boarding school in Pence Springs, WV, is proud to announce their status as a Research Designated Program. The National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs has established RDP status to create higher standards in evaluating the effectiveness of member programs.
While GBA has undergone independent research studies related to their therapeutic model of Strong Relationality, becoming an RDP with NATSAP is an achievement that reflects a commitment to systematically examine their work within a highly recognized organization. Whether serving families as a therapeutic boarding school for depression, a boarding school for anxiety, or other non-acute conditions that may be future threatening, Greenbrier Academy is thankful to have achieved these standards through dedicated coordination and teamwork.
By participating in the Outcomes Research Project, Greenbrier has collected, and will continue to submit data that includes demographic information upon admission; the Youth Outcome Questionnaire (YOQ), Parent Outcome Questionnaire (OQ), at enrollment, discharge, and one-year post discharge. In order to maintain these standards, Greenbrier will continue to submit an annual report to the research Committee verifying ongoing collection of their enrollment data, and of their discharge data.
Greenbrier is proud to be part of NATSAP's efforts in raising professional standards, while also investing in an increased understanding of their impact on students and their families.
