CASA Treatment Model
Calo’s remedy to this belief system and the painful situations that arise from it is relationship. Joy comes from experiencing acceptance, security, and attunement in a committed home (CASA).
Theory of Change
Our goal is not to focus on the behaviors (with rewards, advice giving), but what causes those behaviors- their feelings. Going deeper still, what causes those feelings is the core self-concept. At Calo, rather than just correct the behaviors, we’re actually going to the source. How we correct this core, is by providing an accepting atmosphere.
Issues of Attachment
In all of our interventions, relationships are the vehicle of change. Our residential treatment model for students with reactive attachment disorder focuses on relationships with parents, therapists, coaches and purebred Golden Retrievers. Our program creates real connections and meaning with others.
