We Help Boys with Avoidant Personality Disorder
Does your son consider himself socially inept, sure that his peers don’t find him interesting or appealing, suffering from seriously low self-confidence and heightened self-consciousness? If so, he may well be dealing with Avoidant Personality Disorder.
We can help your teen as he struggles with Avoidant Personality Disorder, exhibiting long-standing feelings of inadequacy and being unduly sensitive to what others think of him. This might lead to him being shy, wary of activities in which he’d be interacting with others, especially afraid of being subject to ridicule.
We’re Here to Help Your Son Who Has Avoidant Personality Disorder
It’s imperative to find just the right diagnosis and set of treatments that will allow him to thrive if he is not succeeding in a traditional school setting. Our especially small student base and customized program might be just the thing to ensure his growth.
While an often-diagnosed disorder, there is not a universally agreed-upon treatment. Cognitive behavioral therapy and group therapy are often used, and training in social skills might be helpful, too.
We know that the last thing you’d want is for Avoidant Personality Disorder to rule your teen’s life, and our key to success will be to successfully confront his (negative) beliefs about himself!
Pine Mountain Academy – Offering a Second Chance at a New Life
Many bright young men have been compromised as a result of destructive choices. Boys who once excelled at academics, now have failing grades. Once athletic or artistically gifted, now showing no interest. Who once looked to family for direction and love, now looks to a negative peer group for approval. You have exhausted every option in your search to help your son – medication, counseling, location changes, and it might be time now for Pine Mountain Boys Academy. Our 15-month, bible-based, therapeutic curriculum is developed to highlight introspective thinking and works hand-in-hand with our Christian counseling. Customized for each student, boys are encouraged to examine areas of their lives that are in need of change.
In addition to Individual Counseling, Group Counseling occurs on a regular basis, guided by the pastoral counselors on staff. This time is utilized to allow students an opportunity to grapple with and resolve commonly faced issues.
The Teen Challenge program provides a safe haven for adolescents who have sought to fill the void in their hearts, only to reap destructive consequences in its place. Our boarding school provides an opportunity for each student to refocus and assess his life decisions. While at Pine Mountain, distractions are limited and we provide an environment conducive to learning; students do not have access to email or social networking sites as they work on their secondary education in our accredited, private school with rigorous, high quality, self-paced curriculum created exclusively for Christian schools.
Our Aftercare program will re-establish your son’s trust, as well as specific responsibilities, conflict resolution and spiritual commitments for his return into your family setting.
Our environment balances discipline with personal responsibility to create a positive peer culture, nurturing students who’ll have been taught indispensable lessons of strong work ethics, teamwork and determination. Your son will leave Pine Mountain Boys Academy making constructive decisions, having true confidence in the unique young man he is, and with a vision for his positive future.
