Abstract

Milieu treatment is cited as a therapeutic aspect of inpatient, residential, and day programs for seriously disturbed adolescents. However, the literature is generally descriptive, and does not link specific treatment recommendations with theoretical conceptualizations. This population has unique developmental needs and pressures that must be taken into account for treatment to be effective. This article examines the theoretical and empirical literature and proposes an integrated model for effective day treatment for this population.
