Sunrise RTC Presents at NATSAP Annual Conference
Sunrise was very busy at the 2021 annual National Association for Therapeutic Schools and Programs (NATSAP) virtual conference. In addition to presenting, Sunrise representatives hosted a sponsored event, moderated sessions, and roundtables, and volunteered on the NATSAP conference committee.
Senior Residential Director Amanda McNatt and Transition Coordinator Alexana Stavros presented “Reframing Attitudes Towards Transition: Relapse as a Point of Change”. Amanda and Alexana discussed inevitable relapse as an integral part of the healing process. The presentation highlighted applications of dialectical thinking, positive psychology, and attachment theory that lead towards practical and manageable transition.
Sunrise Residential Treatment Center also sponsored a conference event that allowed participants to engage with one another in small virtual groups. It was called “Blast from the Past: A high school-themed mix and mingle”. The evening was spent laughing and sharing memories from high school experiences.
