When Words Alone Are Not Enough, the Arts Can Help..

 

We are a Residential Treatment Center for Troubled Teens 12-18 offering Comprehensive Arts Therapy Programs Covering all Four Arts Modalities – Music, Drama, Art and Dance/Movement Therapies..

Our therapists and arts professionals work with teens who have psychological, emotional, behavioral, social, and other developmental challenges – reaching them in ways traditional talk therapy cannot. The arts provide a way for students to communicate and overcome complex feelings, fears and struggles when words alone are not enough. Everyone was born to create – a background in the arts isn’t a necessity.

 


Art Therapy

Through art students express and examine feelings, learn about cause & effect relationships, problem solving, social skills, responsibility, & self-esteem..

At Lava Height Academy, our therapists and creative professionals work together with our students to help them learn to accept themselves, the ideas of others, and to accept feedback and praise in a healthy manner.  

Creative arts therapies provide unique opportunities for students to create and perform together through interactive music-making, story-creating, visual arts projects and dance movement.

Creative Arts Therapies utilize a strenghs-based approach to working with individuals where one can explore their own unique talents and skills.  No artistic background is necessary.  

Experienced and caring therapists promote dialogue, between group members and address social skill development as well as facilitate opportunities to enhance empathy, initiation, and cooperative play. Groups are formed continuously in order to meet the ever-changing needs of each student.

From Our Parents

The arts program was so effective in getting through to our son who couldn’t connect with his therapists at school or home.  He had such a wonderful experience and we’re able to communicate much better as a family.Kay & Lynn D., Los Angeles, CA
Choosing Lava Heights Academy was the best decision we could have made for our family.  After therapy failed we tried wilderness, and then a public program.  Lava Heights has a beautifully thought out program and environment where our daughter has excelled.Don & Jessica T., Chicago, IL
