At CALO, we treat a very specific subset of the struggling teen population: we heal the effects of childhood trauma using an attachment paradigm. Emotionally unstable teens with a history of trauma and wounded in the areas of empathy, altruism, and relationship formation are our focus.
The CALO therapeutic model is based on the belief that most emotional and many behavioral disturbances in young people respond best to attachment, relationship interventions. The CALO model is based on the principles of trust and connection. Students at CALO are expected to develop their sense of self through the Interdependence of Trust of Care, Trust of Control, and Trust of Self.
