Skills For Life – A Trauma Informed Treatment Approach

All of our programs utilize Skills for Life - a strength-based, comprehensive treatment model designed by Hillcrest Educational Centers for the purpose of providing trauma informed care to our students. This model has been developed through an extensive process of training, research and consultation.  It is a model that utilizes best practices and evidence-based practices in the field of children’s behavioral health.

 

At its core, Skills for Life recognizes the need for students to develop a wide variety of skills.  Repeated experiences of trauma, attachment disruption, loss, domestic violence or abuse can be emotionally debilitating.  Skills for Life recognizes that our students’ life experiences often have prevented them from developing skills needed to successfully manage the day-to-day stressors of life.  Through assessment, counseling, modeling, and practice, our students will learn the skills necessary to succeed in their home community.
