Inherent in each individual is a Wellspring of personal being that is unique, unrepeatable and imbued with spirit.
Uniqueness and Dignity
The approach in all of its programs is founded on a belief in the uniqueness and dignity of the individual. We strive always to see, know, and reach the essential person in our care. What we seek in therapy, counseling and education is not external social adjustment alone, but to help the person access what is inherent in personality and giftedness – the “wellspring” of one’s own being – that is ultimately the basis for a stable and creative individual life.
Family relationships, trainings, visits and therapies remain a cornerstone of Wellspring programs.
All parents of our younger clients are expected to work as part of the “team.”
Importantly, Wellspring & the Arch Bridge School takes great care to screen, train and supervise our staff.
We strive to assure that persons working in our programs in whatever capacity are quality people. All staff work hard to be able to meet the needs of those we serve with caring, compassion and strength, with the intensity and relational intimacy necessary to support a return to their families, schools and communities.
Our commitment in our school and each and all of our programs is to meet each individual person, student and family with honesty, intelligence, respect, strength and care in a mutual healing endeavor.
