Therapies, Certifications and Accreditations

Sanctuary Certified
Glade Run is certified in the Sanctuary Model of organizational leadership. The goal is a deliberate shift in the understanding of how a traumatic life event or chronic stress affects our ability to relate to the world. When we encounter a struggling person, our approach changes from “what’s wrong with you?” to “what’s happened to you?”and “how can we help?” This approach changes the therapeutic relationship to offer communication and trust without judgement. By creating a safe environment, we are thereby building steps for a successful future.

Evidence Based Practices at Glade Run’s RTF:
Aggression Replacement Therapy (ART)
ART is a cognitive behavioral intervention program to help children and adolescents improve social skill competence and moral reasoning, manage anger more effectively, and reduce aggressive behavior. The program specifically targets chronically aggressive children and adolescents ages 12-17. This model was developed by Arnold P. Goldstein, Barry Glick and John Gibbs. Aggression Replacement Training® has been implemented in schools and juvenile delinquency programs across the United States and throughout the world. The program consists of 10 weeks (30 sessions) of intervention training, and is divided into three components—social skills training, anger-control training, and training in moral reasoning. Residents attend a one-hour session in each of these components each week. Incremental learning, reinforcement techniques, and guided group discussions enhance skill acquisition and reinforce the lessons in the curriculum.

Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)
TF-CBT is a psychosocial treatment model designed to treat posttraumatic stress and related emotional and behavioral problems in children and adolescents. Initially developed to address the psychological trauma associated with child sexual abuse, the model has been adapted for use with children, who have a wide array of traumatic experiences, including domestic violence, traumatic loss, and the often multiple psychological traumas experienced by children prior to foster care placement. The treatment model is designed to be delivered by trained therapists who initially provide parallel individual sessions with children and their parents (or guardians), with conjoint parent-child sessions increasingly incorporated over the course of treatment. The acronym PRACTICE reflects the components of the treatment model: psychoeducation and parenting skills, relaxation skills, affect expression and regulation skills, cognitive coping skills and processing, trauma narrative, in vivo exposure (when needed), conjoint parent-child sessions, and enhancing safety and future development. Although TF-CBT is generally delivered in 12-16 sessions of individual and parent-child therapy, it also may be provided in the context of a longer-term treatment process or in a group therapy format.

Structural Family Therapy (SFT)
SFT is a developmental/systemic, trauma-informed model that examines biological influences, developmental influences and competencies of individual family members. It also considers influences and competencies found within families and within their environmental cultural contexts.
