Therapist Treatment Caseloads
A good metaphor for therapist caseloads is the number of students in a teacher’s classroom. The larger the number in the class—no matter how good the teacher—the less individual instruction your daughter receives. We believe that small caseloads equate to better outcomes—more time to observe your daughter, to offer insight, to provide feedback, and to facilitate lasting change. For this reason, your daughter’s therapist will never have more 6 to 7 girls on a caseload in a CERTS residential treatment program.
The Importance of Individual Therapy
With smaller caseloads, your daughter has more time for one-on-one, individualized therapy. In these private sessions, they acquire self-knowledge, gain insight into their addiction and develop inner strength. Individual therapy is structured according to the patient’s needs. She may be guided through a series of questions to help her discover her own personal motivation to get sober or overcome an eating disorder. Therapists often focus on these preoccupying subjects:
- Cravings or withdrawal symptoms
- Personal obstacles to recovery
- Progress with recovery
- Interactions with others
- Coping skills
- Goals for the near future
Individual therapy helps girls develop fresh perspectives about their lives and learn healthy coping skills. It also helps them deal with addictive behaviors and negative emotions. One-on-one talks with a therapist will also help girls improve their relationships and regain a sense of self-empowerment.
