Overview

Monroe Harding is committed to viewing and interacting with youth from a Trauma Informed perspective.   Staff understand normal and trauma impacted brain development and interact with youth in ways that encourage and restore normal brain functioning.  Staff are curious about “what happened to the youth to cause current behavior” and work with them uniquely based upon their developmental level.  Focus is on providing a safe and stable environment that encourages learning from mistakes and celebrating small advances in behavior or thought process.  Staff models healthy emotional regulation skills, flexibility in working with others, and effective restoration of relationships after issues arise.  Monroe Harding seeks individuals who enjoy adolescents and celebrates their uniqueness, are able to develop strong relationships and influence, and who are invested in their own personal growth and development as they seek to model effective behaviors for youth.
