avoidant personality disorderHere’s How We See Avoidant Personality Disorder at Treasure Coast Boys Academy:

Does your son believe himself to be uninteresting and unappealing to his peers, show long-standing feelings of inadequacy, and suffer from seriously low self-worth and heightened sense of self-consciousness?  If so, he may be struggling with Avoidant Personality Disorder.

We can help your boy if he is dealing with Avoidant Personality Disorder, in which he will exhibit great sensitivity to what others think about him, leading him to being socially inhibited, careful to stay away from activities which would necessitate his interaction with others, especially fearful of being subject to ridicule.

What Treasure Coast Boys Academy Can Do to Help Your Son Who Struggles with Avoidant Personality Disorder

While commonly diagnosed, there is not universal agreement on effective treatment.  Cognitive behavioral therapy and group therapy are often used, and social skills guidance could be, too.

It’s imperative to find the right diagnosis and set of treatments that will allow your child to find success if he is not making headway in a traditional school setting.  Our dedicated staff and structured environment might be just the thing to ensure his growth at Boys Ranch.  

We know that the last thing you’d want is for Avoidant Personality Disorder to control his life; our key to success will be to successfully confront your son’s (negative) beliefs about himself!

Treasure Coast Boys Academy…  Giving Your Son a Second Chance at a Bright Future.

Treasure Coast Boys Academy is a Christ-centered therapeutic boarding school for at-risk boys.  We believe in the potential within each boy no matter how much trouble they are causing for themselves or others.

A dorm setting on 30-acres of Florida cattle and orchard country, we are not a lockdown facility, and think the strongest deterrent is an environment that fosters a sense of well being, where a student feels positive and safe about himself and his opportunities in the world.

Treasure Coast Boys Academy provides focused and personalized academic attention for our students. Education goes on and credits are earned, but education is not our primary focus.  Integrity, hard work, and respect for others are what we are concerned with most in our Teen Challenge program; your boy can find more success with his academic pursuits here and once back home, when those traits are firmly established.

Individual counseling sessions are not as frequent as are the many 10-15 minute life coaching opportunities that occur during daily school, ranch work, or recreational activities. Therapy takes place all day, every day at Treasure Coast Boys Academy.  As was once said, “the outside of a horse is good for the inside of a man.” A simple horse ride can provide a life changing conversation in a young man’s life at our boys ranch. The same can be said for a day spent on the lake, fishing with a good mentor.

Our goal is to provide challenging and stimulating opportunities in which students can learn trades, care for animals, and gain new experiences outside of the classroom.  Call Treasure Coast Boys Academy at (772) 978-4164 to give your at-risk son a new perspective and a fresh start toward a successful and fulfilling life.
