What is Strategic Self-Regulation?
Strategic Self-Regulation Therapy is based upon the work of Bruce Perry and reflects an understanding of the impact of trauma upon the central nervous system: it creates an inability for affected individuals to regulate their responses when faced with either real or perceived threats, and, therefore, to react with appropriate behavior.  Given that Stone Path Academy students are in their teens, they typically have a history of compounded impact from trauma and they present a complex array of responses to stress or threat: these range from extreme withdrawal to harming self or others or damaging property.  Stone Path's therapeutic frame work includes individually established expectations and embedded treatment throughout the entire school day.  Each student becomes able to develop a healthier sense of self in relation to others and the world around them.  In this emotional state of security and calmness, a student is increasingly able to engage in learning new concepts and skills.
