- Traditional therapy
Trad.i.tion.al / ther.a.py
Traditional therapy is the practice of mainstream psychological treatment, such as one-on-one therapy. Traditional therapy is usually used after an individual develops some mental malady that requires psychiatric treatment. The most widely used traditional therapeutic practice is therapy sessions between a person and a mental-health professional. Additionally, many psychiatric treatment programs for troubled teens and troubled young adults, implement traditional therapy in conjunction with their own, unique treatment program.
Although practical and proven to treat psychologically struggling individuals, traditional therapy is sometimes not intensive enough to treat an individual. Troubled teens and troubled young adults who display out of control behaviors require the therapeutic services of a behavioral treatment program, as well as, traditional therapy. Moreover, most programs for troubled teens and young adults offer such therapies within their particular treatment curriculum.
Wilderness therapy is a proven treatment method for psychologically ailing teens and young adults. Wilderness therapy provides intense, effective treatment methods, as well as traditional therapeutic practices from professional psychiatric staff. The environmental therapeutic properties of the wilderness are what separates wilderness therapy programs from more traditional, less efficient treatment methods.
