Calo's Clinical Approach
Calo Preteens achieves emotional and behavioral regulation through playfulness and spontaneous, connective experiences. The program utilizes dyadic developmental psychotherapy and a proprietary therapeutic model, an evidence-based and effective treatment for trauma and disorders of attachment, to restore trust and heal relationships.
Mapping the brain with Neurotherapy
Neurofeedback (NFB) is electroencephalography (EEG)-biofeedback; it measures electrical brain-wave activity then transforms the frequencies into a digital signal which allows a computer to feed back the information to a student through video and sound. Its effect is that it helps to treat various psychological and physical disorders by shaping the way the brain behaves. This shaping improves the efficiency of the brain and provides the ideal functioning for healing and development to occur.
Animal Asisted Therapy
Animal-assisted therapy provides opportunities for students to experience love, empathy, and acceptance by building relationships with animals. In our environment, students experientially live and learn our CASA model through the practice of building relationship skills with a safe animal, then taking those skills and practicing them in their healthy human relationships. We call this Transferable Attachment Therapy and it is incredibly powerful.
