Making the Most of Community Connections

(Florida)

Community ConnectionsThrough our years of experience, the Devereux Florida team has found that our behavioral health and foster children are more likely to succeed when they are connected to the community in ways that build on their personal strengths. That means getting involved in local groups and activities that match their unique talents, interests and needs. Our Volusia County Counseling Center has highlighted this concept by encouraging clients to connect to the community in a variety of ways. For instance, one behavioral therapist helped a client join a local weight loss group. The young woman not only lost 10 pounds, she made significant improvements in her key issues of self-esteem and motivation.  Other success stories include a middle school client who was encouraged to take part in a talent show, foster children who joined a church youth group, and a middle school student whose behavior improved after joining a football team.
