Therapeutic Activities

Individual Pastoral Counseling

Each Student is specially assigned to the caseload of a CGA on-site Pastoral Counselor. Along with individual and group counseling, this Counselor is also responsible to ensure a smooth delivery of all of CGA’s services to the student and family. The counselor is the point of contact for the family, available to answer questions and give updates on the students progress.

cga-9Group Counseling  – Group counseling occurs on a regular basis, guided by the pastoral counselors on staff here at CGA.  This time is utilized to allow students an opportunity to grapple with and resolve commonly faced issues.  Students learn to constructively express their thoughts, ideas, and questions in an environment where each member is accepted and respected.  Group counseling is not utilized to scrutinize individual members or to glorify past poor decisions.  The focus in group sessions at CGA is on change and growth.   Topics or Resources used may include:

  • • Anger and Personal Rights, Dave Batty
  • • Breaking Free, Beth Moore
  • • Growing Through Failure, Dave Batty
  • • Pathway to Christian Character, Insight Group
  • • Seeing Yourself in God’s Image, Dave Batty
  • • Total Forgiveness, R.T. Kendall

The first hour of each school day is devoted to a therapeutic focus. Our bible-based, therapeutic curriculum is designed in such a way to emphasize introspective thinking and works hand-in-hand with our Christian counseling.
