Lebanon Therapeutic After School Program Description:

The goal of this program is to enable each youth to improve his functioning in the home, school and community by providing structured treatment services during the afternoon and evening hours. The program is also designed to prevent deterioration in functioning that may result in the need for more intensive or restrictive mental health services. The program will consist of a range of individualized, as well as, organized therapeutic, recreational and socialization activities with the youth and their families. These individualized and group therapeutic experiences assist youth in developing social and coping skills; cultivating self-expression, self-awareness and self-esteem; strengthening impulse control and the ability to manage stress; and building problem-solving and coping skills. CASSP values provide the philosophical basis for this service.


The purpose of the therapeutic after school program is to help youth improve their social, emotional and behavioral functioning in the home, school and community settings by providing a routine of therapeutic activities during the afternoon to evening hours.


The therapeutic after school program provides therapeutic activities, such as social skills activities, sharing and listening activities, partner time activities, therapeutic recreation, homework time, community field trips and family outreach.
