Individual academic treatment

/ /ac.a.dem.ic/ /treat.ment/

Individual academic treatment is a specialized academic program designed to teach students individually, as opposed to clumping students together in an educational setting.

Adolescents are their own unique person. It is for this reason, that teens should also receive their own, personal academic curriculum. Teens learn at different speeds, through different methods, and, therefore, should be given an academic curriculum specifically created with their learning needs in mind.

Unfortunately, traditional schooling does not provide students with individual academic treatment. Typically, traditional teaching methods require students to learn as a group. Consequently, some of the teens in this group fall behind, due to their individual learning needs getting neglected. Teens, who fall behind, are then singled out, leaving them with the stigma of being 'stupid' or slow.' This unfortunate misunderstanding results in many teens feeling inadequate. These students may then be apprehensive to even attempt to learn and grow academically.

Fortunately, teens, who would greatly benefit from the services of individual academic treatment, are able to receive their education at various facilities. These specialized treatment centers include residential treatment centers, group homes, and therapeutic boarding schools for troubled teens.

Individualized Clinical care

Individualized clinical care is an approach that accommodates every aspect of a person's life. Individualized treatment incorporates physical, psychological, emotional, developmental, familial, social and cultural factors. Every client is treated as a unique individual with treatment plans tailored to the individual's specific needs and problems.

In regards to therapeutic treatment, individualized clinical care provides an individual with a treatment program that is unique to them and their psychological needs. Instead of implementing a 'one size fits all' treatment, an individual is able to fully focus on their own unique issues and is then able to achieve therapeutic wellness with success.

Individualized clinical care is the most effective way to treat troubled teens. By addressing an individual, troubled adolescent's specific issues, psychological professional staff are able to effectively treat their unique ailments and disorders. In other words, a teen's disorders are unique and different from other teens. Accordingly, a teen's therapeutic treatment should be individualized and designed for their unique disorders.

Internal conflict

Internal conflict is a mental or emotional dilemma within an individual's own state of mind. This personal dilemma is when an individual is torn between two choices: picking between what is right and what is wrong. Contrary to external conflict, which is used to describe a person's conflict with outside forces and easily is observable to other people, Internal conflict is completely introversive, often times unnoticed by outside parties.

The Teenage psyche is riddled with all kinds of internal conflicts. Adolescents are constantly battling with the choice of what would be ethical, as opposed to what would be easiest. Often times, the right thing, to do, is less fun and requires some amount diligence, but will ultimately benefit an individual in the long run. The wrong choice, however, is usually much easier to act on and generally brings about instant gratification. The wrong choice may initially be the easiest, more convenient of the two, but will almost exclusively result in negative consequences later on down the road. Unfortunately, troubled teens often times choose to do the more convenient, less productive of choices when engaged in an internal conflict. These teens believe they are taking the path of the least resistance, when in reality, their flawed plan will ultimately lead to overwhelming adversity.

Troubled teens who constantly fight a losing battle of internal conflict, are able to overcome and conquer their flawed way of thinking through therapeutic treatment. Additionally, residential treatment is a therapeutic treatment that can assist these types of struggling adolescents and provide them with the tools to live a balanced, healthy lifestyle.
