New Haven is a residential treatment center for adolescent girls that focuses on effecting change within the family system. Students at New Haven deal with a variety of issues, including sexual trauma, anxiety, depression, substance use, attachment, and eating disorders. Recreational Therapy (RT) at New Haven is an integral part of the students’ journey, and focuses on providing our students opportunities to serve, leisure education, and experiential tasks. Each student participates in RT four times a week, with each group lasting an hour and a half. In these groups, we focus heavily on processing, and drawing parallels between the students’ behaviors inside and outside of group. We also provide two adventure days a month, where we take the girls off campus for an extended leisure opportunity, including kayaking, hiking, aerial arts, dance, swimming, etc. New Haven currently employs three full-time CTRS’s. If you are looking for an internship where relationships, family systems, and processing are key, New Haven is the right place for you!
