Psychological Services

Upon admission to Whitney, the student is assigned to a Staff Therapist.  This individual is a Masters or Doctoral level clinician who, in addition to providing direct clinical services, supervises and coordinates all case management and therapy functions for his or her caseload.

Staff Therapists provide individual and group therapy to a caseload of (12) students.  Groups are comprised of not more than (6) students.  We feel that a small group size geared to the individual student s cognitive level optimizes potential growth and learning.  Students also participate in a twice-weekly Social Skills group that addresses issues such as anger management, sexuality, relationships, dating and life after Whitney.
