Avoidant Personality Disorder (APD) in GirlsAt Wings of Faith Academy, we know how to work with Avoidant Personality Disorder (APD), which is characterized by an ongoing pattern of inhibition in social settings and overwhelming feelings of inadequacy. Your daughter may avoid activities with significant interpersonal contact due to fears of criticism or rejection, or view herself as socially inept or inferior to others. Does she restrict intimate relationships for fear of being ridiculed, or is she hesitant to take personal risks since they may prove embarrassing?
While causes are not completely understood, early childhood experiences and individual temperament are typical contributors. To that end, treatment methods may include social skills training, cognitive behavioral therapy, group therapy to allow for practicing of social skills, or exposure treatment (which gradually increases the number and frequency of social contacts).
If your teen girl is struggling with APD (or panic attacks or social phobia), our Christian boarding school can help.
Wings of Faith Academy is uniquely equipped to help teenage girls struggling with Avoidant Personality Disorder. Our structured environment and counseling will help your daughter get the help she needs in coping with APD. We will help her discover and face her particular insecurities and learn how to overcome them.
We understand how difficult it is when you are looking for help when your daughter is suffering. Finding the right boarding school will surely be one of the most important decisions you will ever make. Our safe environment with compassionate care and staff supervision can be the first important step in helping her to find a way out of the control that Avoidant Personality Disorder seems to hold over her.
In addition to helping your daughter with her Avoidant Personality Disorder, her academic work is terribly important (we offer a fully accredited high school diploma program). We also believe it is necessary for her life to be well balanced.
