The Heartland Family Service Summer Therapeutic Day Program is a four-week session for children grades K-12 developed to support and strengthen a child’s coping skills during the long summer break. Designed to give children a feeling of security and confidence, the Summer Therapeutic Day Program encourages children to explore, learn, grow, and build positive relationships.
Masked as a summer day camp based on fun, interactive curriculum that engages and motivates your child, our program is specifically structured for families who need or want therapeutic services during the long, sometimes chaotic, summer. The program is designed to teach children skills for self-regulation and impulse management; staff are focused on building positive social skills and healthy self-expression.
• Art Therapy Group teaches children self-expression through a variety of creative, interactive activities that help increase awareness of self and others, as well as
cope with symptoms, stress, and anxiety.
• Coping Club is designed to teach children coping skills for stress management, feeling identification, feeling expression, and cognitive coping through fun,
• Developing a Better Tomorrow Group introduces children to Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). Licensed mental health therapists employ hands-on teaching techniques and role-play activities to help children learn new ways of coping with difficult, sometimes confusing emotions.
