Overview

Self-reported by organization

Allendale provides a safe home, school and place to heal for children who have been abused, neglected or who have mental illness.Even with the scars of illness or tragedy, children can heal, grow and contribute.  These children are NOT at fault.  They deserve a future. 
 

 

 

The Allendale Association is committed to restoring these children and youth to health and returning them to healthier families or to independent and productive futures.
 

 

Today’s programs and services reach children with a broad range of moderate to profound emotional, behavioral, and learning difficulties and challenges.  These children come to Allendale with the devastating experiences of failure in the classroom, rejection in the home and isolation in the community.  The highly sophisticated therapeutic programs that Allendale offers these children help them to heal and prepare for improved opportunities in their futures.  The Allendale Association serves over 1300 children, youth and families annually.

Program 2

The Relational Re-Enactment Systems Approach to Treatment

Allendale’s model, the Relational Re-Enactment Systems Approach to Treatment (REStArT), is a comprehensive child and adolescent mental health treatment model. Treatment is based on youth’s "conflict cycles" (i.e. relational trauma), which are defined by their re-enactments of their attachment experiences in the present. By engaging all systems involved with a youth and the experiences the members of those systems have with him, the treatment team can develop an understanding of how the youth sees themselves, others, and their relationships. Plans for treatment, then, are driven by this conceptualization, which is unique to each youth, but created within a model that uses attachment theory, object relations theory, an understanding of the impact of trauma and neurobiological underpinnings to organize the youth’s patterns into diagnostic categories. Treatment plans are developed to interrupt this cycle, which gives youth a chance to experience the feelings that have been inaccessible to them because they were being acted-out. The interruption of their re-enactment also gives them a chance to find new ways of relating and responding.

The REStArT model has thirteen principles that capture the philosophy, theory, and practice behind the approach. These principles guide treatment process and implementation.
