Eagle Ranch Academy Educates Kids in Anger Management Therapy

     Kids who act out in response to dealing with traumatic events in their lives can often be difficult to deal with. Parents may feel they cannot reach their child or handle their outbursts when they happen. Common issues that lead to this uncontrollable behavior are fears of being abandoned if there has been a divorce in the family, a sense of injustice in the home at school (such as in response to bullying), bipolar disorder, or the inability to self-reflect.

Eagle Ranch Academy is a residential treatment center for teens 11-17 who have exhausted traditional therapies in learning to deal with their anger. If you have a teen who has become uncontrollable, we have methods designed to help them control their emotions. ERA is a working ranch located in St George, Utah. We have clinical and licensed staff with not only the expertise to help your child, but with the experience and loving care you can trust your child to.

A regular day in the program gives your child reason to pause, think and manage their emotional responses. The program consists of classes of 12 students who are monitored and instructed by professionals, including an embedded therapist. They will have to set goals, complete chores, complete their studies, and engage in individual and group therapy sessions. They will still be able to carry on with their academic studies in their home state, because we use an accredited academic curriculum. The program also includes individual life skills instruction intended to give your child the tools they will need to continue to manage their lives in a positive way after they leave us.

Our therapists will employ proven clinical methods to help your child not only control their anger, but express their emotions in a more positive way. We combine these with our 8 Core Values of Character, our Life Coaching Skills program, our positive reinforcement Value Based Behavior Modification Program, and Emotional Growth Seminars. Together these strategies show kids that there are healthy, positive ways to express themselves, and encourage introspection and self-evaluation. We also address your child’s underlying issue that is causing them to act out.

Throughout the program, you will be in constant contact with us and your child. At Eagle Ranch Academy, we not only help your child with their anger management issues, we are dedicated to helping you help your child. We even have emotional Growth Seminars that the whole family can attend, so everyone in the home can learn to deal with the complexities of anger management and crisis control.

First, Eagle ranch Academy will evaluate your teen based on past and present behavior, and with psychological and educational testing, if applicable. Then we’ll help you navigate through what can become a tedious process dealing with your health insurance for the coverage of tuition costs. We also have scholarships available. We’ll always be available to answer any questions you have. If you only want a limited enrollment for your child on a crisis basis, we also have that option available to you. ERA has scholarships available to parents who want to attend any of our seminars and workshops.

If your child is out of control and needs anger management therapy, Eagle Ranch Academy can help.
