Spring Ridge Academy Launches “From the Expert” Podcast
MAYER, ARIZONA, AUGUST 9, 2021 —Spring Ridge Academy will launch a new podcast on August 12, 2021, called “From the Experts.” Staff members will interview leaders in therapeutic practices and modalities that allow general populations to understand current practices better.
The podcast is a passion project that stems from the Spring Ridge Academy values of honesty, openness, and transparency in care. Current research shows that clients who are successful in therapy have a shared understanding of the issues and goals that are the targets of the work. The podcast aims to extend this idea further by giving people insight into the tools and methods used in treatment. By providing information about the modalities to a general audience, people know the strategies that will be used to help them reach their goals and why they are effective.
The project hopes to go beyond an audience of parents whose children are in residential treatment but anyone who wants better to understand the ins and outs of therapeutic care in all settings.
“Having the ability to use a variety of modalities in care is critical in providing individualized services both long term and in the moment,” said Dr. Erin Smith, Director of Operational Excellence, “but building trust in these modalities is equally important. People have a right to know the people, philosophies, research, and origins behind their therapy work. This podcast provides that opportunity.”
In the first episode, Suzie Courtney interviews Dr. David Berceli, the creator of Trauma and Tension Release Exercises. The podcast will be available on major podcasting sources, including Apple Podcasts and Spotify, or the Spring Ridge Academy website.
Spring Ridge Academy is a family-owned residential treatment center located 1.5 hours north of Phoenix, Arizona, serving young women ages 13-17. The program is accredited by the Joint Commission and Cognia and licensed by the Arizona Department of Health Services. Using evidence-based clinical modalities with a traditional rigorous college-prep curriculum, including fine and expressive arts and team sports, Spring Ridge Academy has created a relationship-based setting that allows the students’ emotional, relational, spiritual, intellectual, and physical growth.
