SEL | Tricare-Certified Residential Treatment

What is Social and emotional learning (SEL) and why is it such a significant part of Youth Home's Residential Treatment Program?

Social and Emotional Learning is the process we go through to gain and apply the knowledge, skills, and attitudes we learn over time. We use it to develop healthy identities, manage emotions and achieve personal and collective goals, to feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain supportive relationships, and make responsible and caring decisions.

We care greatly that each of our patients has the opportunity to develop these skills in a safe environment as they process through trauma, mental and behavioral health disorders.

Primary Characteristics of Social and Emotional Learning:

What does this mean for my child? (Tricare-Certified Residential Treatment Program)

Training Social and Emotional Learning in a therapeutic environment means that in our program your child will have ample chances to learn and train these skills. As a trauma informed care facility, we understand that behavior is communication. We seek to understand, teach self-regulation and allow do overs. When a relationship is "ruptured", we make repairs. We empathize when someone is triggered, and practice deep breathing. We care for each other even more deeply because we know that healing happens in relationships.


We asked parents what they liked most about our program and they said:
"the structure and consistency"
"my child being taught how to interact with peers appropriately"
"the unique ways of healing - like gardening"

"My child's response to the program has been extraordinary.” Our team collaborates with each individual patient and their families using the Trauma Informed Care approach to help them develop the:
• self-awareness,
• empathy,
• impulse control,
• and self-motivation needed to enjoy a quality life.

If you’ve tried therapy with your child and still feel overwhelmed, Youth Home may be a good fit for your family.
