STARS Program (Boys ages 6-11 years old)
The STARS Program is designed to re-educate and reinforce healthy sexuality in sexually reactive boys, ages 6 to 11 years old. The STARS Program is structured so that children accomplish long-term, safe, family behavior changes in a ten to twelve-month time frame. Youth receive individual, group and family therapy, academic supports and life skills education, all driven by dynamic assessment and treatment planning. Successful completion of the STARS Program creates a healthy engagement to permanence and reunification.
