Overview

Stetson School provides healing and learning opportunities in a safe and nurturing environment to help children, adolescents, and young adults with special needs to reach their full potential.

Stetson School maintains the belief that every child can succeed. We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to become a confident, capable adult, and a productive member of the community. Our philosophy encourages moral development, an inner sense of compassion, and personal and social responsibility. Such growth and development begins in a safe environment in which the child's life experience has positive meaning and purpose, and where nonviolence and treating others with dignity and respect are primary values.

Stetson School treats children and adolescents with sexual behavior problems. Preventing further sexual victimization is the primary purpose of placement. One of the primary goals of treatment is to provide each child the opportunity to resign from a lifestyle of abusive behavior in a safe, rehabilitative environment. In order to accomplish this, we believe in treating the "whole" child, and not just his sexually reactive or sexually abusive behaviors. Children are more than the sum of their behaviors. Therefore treatment must focus on a range of behavioral, social, familial, and cognitive domains.
