Does Your Son Struggle with Avoidant Personality Disorder?
Our Christian boys ranch can help your boy as he deals with Avoidant Personality Disorder, showing long-standing feelings of inadequacy and undue sensitivity to what others think about him. These might lead to his being self-conscious, wary of activities in which he’d find himself interacting with others, especially fearful of being subject to scorn.
Does he believe that he is socially inept; certain peers find him uninteresting and unappealing, suffering from seriously low self-worth and elevated self-consciousness? If so, your son may well be struggling with Avoidant Personality Disorder.
How Avoidant Personality Disorder is Solved at Master’s Ranch–
It’s imperative to find just the right diagnosis and method of treatment that will allow him to thrive if he is not succeeding in a traditional school setting. Our home-like setting might be just the thing to ensure his growth here.
While rather often diagnosed, there is not much unanimously agreed-upon effective treatment. Cognitive behavioral therapy and group therapy are often used, and instruction in social skills might be, too.
We understand that the last thing you’d want is for Avoidant Personality Disorder to take over your boy’s life, and our key to success will be to successfully confront his (negative) beliefs about himself!
Master’s Ranch – A Special Place for Your Struggling Son.
A decidedly Christian, residential setting, dedicated to the restoration and healing of families and their teens, our ranch-type program for troubled boys uses a family-style model that focuses on work and discipline. Boys live on a working ranch and learn responsibility by taking care of for horses, cattle, pigs and dogs. Farm work offers the emotional connection of animal therapy as well as providing valuable occupational skills with our full-service cattle operation and pedigree dog kennel.
Our boarding school program is heavily vocational in nature. In addition to the skills he’ll gain from caring for farm animals, your boy will work with general contractors in wood, metal, cement, plumbing and electrical construction.
Our computer-based academic curriculum is nationally accredited, enabling students to complete much of their elective requirements for high school, with traditional classroom instruction, remedial assistance, advanced, college-prep coursework available, as well as a vocational diploma.
Your son will receive clinical-type counseling from experienced, licensed therapists in pastoral, group and individual sessions. Our counseling approach is informal, and the outdoor setting encourages active boys to open up and share more readily.
If you’ve almost lost hope and are fighting for your son’s future, consider our small family environment in an agricultural setting, where training is balanced with an unmistakable atmosphere of mentoring, love and acceptance.
