Trauma-Informed Care

Often, youth enter into residential treatment due to behavioral and emotional instabilities that have resulted in unsuccessful interactions with society. Many facilities focus on the remediation of these behaviors as the goal of treatment. At Hermitage Hall, we view these interactions as symptoms of an underlying issue.

Trauma Informed Care provides for an environment and specialized services that are responsive to the unique needs of trauma survivors. Emphasis is placed on “what has happened to the child” rather than “what is wrong with the child.” A deep understanding of survivors and their symptoms in the context of their life experiences guides our care.

Person-Centered Planning

Individualized treatment plans are developed in full partnership with our residents, their guardian(s), and professionals that are familiar with the child’s care prior to admitting to Hermitage Hall. Goals and objectives are outcome based and developed with the youth’s unique strengths, needs, abilities, and preferences in mind. Treatment planning is a collaborative process that involves the youth, his or her guardian, and referral source.
