Trails Carolina - new program
« on: January 03, 2009, 03:49:17 PM »
Trails Carolina does not identify itself specifically as Aspen; however, pretty much everyone there that has noted previous TTI affiliations appears to have spent some time at SUWS of the Carolinas.

Photos on the website are obviously of models, since they don't have any kids yet. Not sure whether this will be an actual dress code policy or not, but all the kids were dressed in khaki pants and blue shirts: light blue turtlenecks for the girls, navy blue for the boys. lols

Lake Toxaway, NC

Trails Carolina Now Accepting Students

January 2, 2008

Graham Shannonhouse, Executive Director for Lake Toxaway, North Carolina-based, Trails Carolina is pleased to announce the program is now accepting students.

Designed for struggling adolescents ages 13 to 17, Trails Carolina integrates clinically sophisticated and research-based modalities including equine therapy (EAP), group and individual therapy with licensed therapists, structured academics with a certified teacher, and comprehensive family inclusion to provide students with an impactful experience that encourages and supports self-awareness and confidence and develops unique and effective tools to ensure continued post-program success.

Trails Carolina operates from the premise that a student's ability to effectively integrate their wilderness experience into real-world skills is every bit as important as the program experience itself. For this reason, a comprehensive and educational family inclusion program is built into the program model. Parents and caregivers are expected to actively participate in their child's experience by working with their student's therapist to complete a course curriculum which parallels the curriculum of their child and by participating in parents workshops designed specifically to address their family's needs. Parents are empowered to help their child better transition their Trails Carolina experience to their "real" lives, as well as enhance the student's experience by being an active participant in the growth and recovery of the family unit. Additionally, students take part in a comprehensive academic program that continues their formal education while on trail. This better prepares the student to seamlessly return to a challenging academic environment without significant disruption in their coursework, while also providing opportunity for the child to practice new-found tools in a real-world setting.

Former SUWS of the Carolinas Executive Director, Shannonhouse, has assembled a dynamic and proven team including Mark Oerther, Admissions Director, Shalene Pierce LCSW, Therapist, Carlyn Daubs MS, Therapist, and Al Evans M.Ed, a certified educator with over 30 years of experience working with youth.

Program Highlights:
Clinically Sophisticated Model
Academic Credits
Equine Therapy
Integrated, Wrap-Around Family Curriculum
Wilderness Expeditions


For additional information, please contact Mark Oerther at: 888-387-2457 or 828-606-3507 and/or visit the Trails Carolina website at http://www.trailscarolina.com.

The director is from Aspen, so I would assume it would be an Aspen program, but it isnt clear on the website.  They site an independent outcome study to support wilderness therapy here which I haven’t seen on other Aspen web sites.


This was from a Keith C. Russell, Ph.D. Study:

The study concluded that participation in outdoor behavioral
healthcare resulted in clinically significant reductions in severity of
behavioral and emotional symptoms
.
........

Over 80% of parents and 95% of participants believed that treatment was effective 24 months after the process.

From what I have read they are heavy into research and studies which focus just on wilderness, Not the entire industry.  They get funding from  US Department of Labor,US Dept. of Agriculture, Aldo Leopold Wilderness Research Institute etc.    and work with UNIVERSITY OF IDAHO WILDERNESS RESEARCH CENTER.

I am still reading up on it but so far look like a great reference.

Where they get their funding from has nothing to do with the validity of their "research".  "Wilderness Research" in the names of both cronies you mention indicates the likelihood of bias.  No, I take that back, it damn well guarantees it.  Keith Russel is the only TTI player I can think of who is even more deceitful than you.

And how much will you be paid for making that reference, John?  You read it here first, Whooter admits to making referrals.  Can he be banned for using his posts as Aspen commercials?

Definitely NOT an Aspen Group.  Most of the staff did work in Apsen programs but tired of the corporate money making machine.  This is an independently owned program.

This is very typical in the business world.  The corporation grows too big and people tire of the lack of intimacy and freedom to develop and implement new ideas so they head out on their own to try something new.  This is a very healthy way for the industry to grow and improve.  I am sure Aspen (and others) are watching them closely to see how and if they are successful and adopt some of their practices if they are working well.

You are not making sense, Danny. I am not marketing anything, nor am I making excuses for an industry that takes advantage of desperate parents.

Quite the contrary. I'm trying to alert folks to the potential dangers of that industry.

Maybe I missed my calling lol, but marketing never really interested me, I liked to be down in the dirt (so to speak) getting the product out the door and solving problems.  But anyone familiar with big business will tell you that you always lose a few good people who are ambitious and can’t wait around for the corporate machine to take notice of you.  I had been there myself.  I am sure Aspen wasn’t happy to lose them and isn’t proud to lose them.  But, it is what makes capitalism work so well and drives businesses to improve and stay competitive.

On a side note:  Curious how it always seems to bother you,Ursus, when the good side of the industry is shown here on fornits or when you struggle to put an evil spin on a post.
