Second Chance™ offers families and troubled teens an outpatient, Christian, therapeutic, spiritual-treatment plan. Rather than subjecting our students to the limitations of behavior management models which primarily have an affect on the outward man, our focus is on spiritual renewal resulting in inner-transformation through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Behavior modification models are limited in that they mostly affect learned-behavior patterns. We have developed a better system; an inner-transformation model which treats the core issues of the heart and mind.
Behavior modification involves changing visible behavior patterns of an individual.
This may be accomplished through positive techniques such as:
a) point systems
b) phase levels, and
c) rewards and consequences
Other treatment methods, which we do not use, utilize negative
techniques such as:
b) psychotropic medication
c) mechanical restraints, and
d) lockdown facilities
Techniques that achieve behavior modification may be relieving at best and appeasing at worst, but keep in mind that it's only a temporary "band-aid" solution. Good behavior can be imitated and used to manipulate programs and people. Yet, all it takes is for a trigger to go off and the "modified person" will relapse. Just as a rusty car can be painted over for appearance sake, so can a hurting person behave and smile outwardly. Yet, it's only a matter of time before the rust seeps through the paint and the pain breaks through the smile.
At Second Chance, we incorporate some effective and positive behavioral modification techniques which confront patterns of immaturity, negative learned behaviors, faulty thinking and poor problem solving skills. But we go deeper and deal with the core issues through our successful Five Point Treatment Plan. This spiritual treatment plan primarily focuses on inner transformation.
The character, emotional and spiritual health of a person can be easily tested and exposed through a) increased pressure, b) life's circumstances and c) developing relationships. Therefore, it stands to reason that the condition of the "inner man" can be easily diagnosed and tested. This makes it possible to foster growth and change.
Ultimately, genuine and good behavior is the result of a changed heart; A heart after God.
