Waterford’s therapeutic team can help your teen boy if he struggles with Avoidant Personality Disorder, long-standing feelings of inadequacy and undue sensitivity to what others think about him. These might lead to being socially inhibited and shy, wary of activities in which they’d find themselves interacting with others, afraid of being subject to scorn.
Does he see himself as socially inept, believe that his peers find him uninteresting and unappealing, suffer from seriously low self-confidence and heightened self-consciousness? If so, your young teen boy may well be dealing with Avoidant Personality Disorder.
It’s critical to find the right diagnosis and set of treatments that will allow your teen to thrive if they are not progressing in a traditional school setting. Our small student base might be just the thing to ensure growth here.
We understand that the last thing you want is for Avoidant Personality Disorder to control your teen’s life. The key to his success will be to effectively confront his (negative) beliefs set in motion.
The Waterford Country School Therapeutic Boarding Program, located in rural Connecticut, serves boys ages 11-17 from around the nation. We are a nonprofit agency serving children and families since 1922. We believe all children want to succeed.
If your son is not successful in the classroom or at home, and shows signs of Avoidant Personality Disorder, we want to help. Call today! 860.440.4352
