At Solstice West RTC, a residential treatment center for teen girls ages 14-18, clinicians and therapeutic staff have been working to increase their knowledge of their therapeutic modalities in order to better serve students. The clinical team continues to gain more understanding of modalities like Brainspotting, EMDR, and others through additional training and certifications.
Solstice West utilizes a holistic approach to treatment to help teens recover from trauma, loss, and attachment issues. This often includes cutting edge treatment methods such as Brainspotting, EMDR, Radically Open Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (RO DBT), and others. These methods combined with traditional therapies and a safe, supportive environment helps students recover from issues related to trauma.
In addition to the newer methodologies, various clinical team members have also recently been trained in the Physiology of Trauma: Toxic Stress and Tetratogens Impact on the Body and Nervous System, Mounted or Equine Connected EMDR, and The Dangers of Vaping: Understanding Substance-Related/Addictive Disorders.
“We believe that ongoing trauma training helps us provide the best possible treatment for our students,” said Clinical Director and Primary Therapist Jaime Palmer, MSW, LCSW. “It’s important for our team to never stop learning or growing so that we can best support our students.”
The clinical team works closely with residential staff to implement the teachings they have learned in all facets of a student’s treatment plan. This helps create lasting positive outcomes for our students. The team at Solstice West will continue to work toward additional certifications to support students and their families.
