Experiential Group Therapy
While your son is at Discovery Ranch, he will join in weekly activities that extend the reach of office-only therapy. He will be in a group of other students led by a primary therapist, an experiential coordinator, and mentors. These activities include: ropes courses, cross country skiing, canoeing, tandem cycling, and rappelling. He will share and discuss each experience with his therapist. Then he and the therapist will examine how the obstacles he encountered are similar to those he faces every day. As a result of these activities, he may discover new interests and abilities to enjoy when he returns home.
