Your child is going through something very few are able to fully understand. In fact, your teen may also be struggling to process and communicate what they’re feeling and why they’re doing the things that they’re doing.
Experiential therapy at Kokua Recovery focuses on helping your teen uncover and work through inner thoughts, feelings, attitudes and patterns of behavior in order to help them recover and bring back the healthy, vibrant child you’ve been missing.
At Kokua Recovery, we take a standard approach to treatment for adolescents, then tailor the details of your teen’s experiential therapy experiences to their specific needs. Our clinically robust experiential treatment approach involves:
Your child will actively engage in 42 hours of experiential therapy a week, including process group therapy, equine therapy, art therapy, family therapy, individual therapy and much more.
We monitor how your teen behaves individually and in group dynamics and keep track of patterns that arise across all our different experiential therapies in order to tailor our approach to help your child heal as effectively as possible.
During process group therapy sessions, your teen will take part in many social activities and exercises that help disrupt negative thought and behavior patterns and decrease reactivity. These exercises also help improve your teen’s ability to form meaningful relationships and grow their understanding in how their actions affect others around them.
It may be difficult for your teen to talk about what they’re going through. In equine therapy, your child will be able to uncover and process difficult thoughts, feelings and beliefs based on how the horse is responding to and interacting with them.
Art is a creative form of expression that gives your teen a chance to work through what’s going on inside of them without having to verbally communicate it. Art projects like sculptures and wood carving can lower your child’s stress and anxiety and help improve their overall mood.
During family therapy, we’ll work with you to improve your relationship with your teen and keep your family moving in a healthy direction. We’ll do family coaching with you separately, then bring you and your teen together for collaborative sessions when your child is ready.
Our therapist will meet with your teen regularly in individual therapy sessions to discuss their treatment progress, identify where they’re excelling and determine what parts of their recovery require more time and attention.
