New Start Digital Youth Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
Developed by a Toronto-based Child and Youth psychologist, the program uses researched-informed behavioural approaches – Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
The eight-week online program, followed by up to six months of aftercare, combines individual and group support. The intensive program also includes parent/caregiver workshops which are based on Emotion Focused Family Therapy (EFFT).
The program will cost 20% of traditional treatment method and will allow youth in under-serviced and rural communities to receive effective and evidence-based treatment.
