A key trait that must be developed to help troubled teens overcome their issues is self-reliance. Many troubled teens will go through life depending on others and unwilling to take responsibility for their actions. This attitude can be very influential to the development of issues like substance abuse, anger, or depression. In order to help your son or daughter move away from these problems, it is important to choose a treatment program that focuses on building self-reliance. One of the most effective ways of helping troubled teens develop this trait is wilderness therapy. At WinGate Wilderness Therapy, we have carefully designed our program to help troubled teens learn to be self-reliant. If you are in need of help for your teen, we encourage you to reach out to us today at (800) 560-1599.
How Wilderness Therapy Develops Self-Reliance In Troubled Teens
1 - Exposure to a new lifestyle - While your teen is going through wilderness therapy, they will be exposed to a completely new and different lifestyle. Spending time in the wilderness will encourage your teen to develop new skills and get outside their comfort zone. This process will help your teen realize that they need to be self-reliant.
2 - Encouraging responsibility - Time spent in the wilderness is an experience that encourages the development of responsibility in troubled teens. As teens realize that they are responsible for themselves, they are able to become more self-reliant and are able to confront their issues.
3 - Requiring self-discipline - Our program seeks to build a level of self-discipline that makes it possible for troubled teens to make better choices and overcome their issues.
Self-Reliance Makes A Difference In Troubled Teens
After going through our program, your teen will return home with a new found sense of self-reliance that will aid them in every aspect of their life. Learning self-reliance helps teens take responsibility for their actions and this, in turn, will encourage your teen to make better choices. Don't let your teen continue to blame their problems on others; WinGate Wilderness Therapy can teach them to self-govern and become more confident.
