Afterschool Program

Effective as an independent group therapy program, the Afterschool program also offers an opportunity for summer campers to continue progress throughout the school year. Quest meets once a week for three 10-week sessions in Alamo (Thursdays 3:30-5:30pm), Oakland (Tuesdays 4-6pm) and Menlo Park (Wednesdays 3:30-5:30pm). With the strains of homework and other activities, Quest provides a time for children to learn the critical skills associated with emotional and social intelligence.

Using the Quest summer model, the program provides an activity hour to work with the children within a naturalistic environment and an hour of group therapy to focus on individual goals, social and emotional skill development and group dynamics. Since the program is only two hours a week, campers earn more points each hour to be sufficient to buy toys at Store or participate in a fieldtrip once every five weeks.

Children are grouped by age ad ability. The Afterschool program provides the opportunity to have a therapist involved with the group for the entire time. This adds a more intensive treatment for the shorter day. Parents provide points for daily goals at home that are combined with camp points and Contract goal points for their reward. Evening parent group meetings occur every five weeks with therapists. Parents receive both written and verbal feedback about their child and effective techniques.

Dr. Field provides clinical direction of the program.
