What is a behavioral modification program for troubled boys?  The term behavioral modification conjures up many different notions, such as "reform school", "boot camp", or jail for juvenile delinquents.  Today, behavioral modification programs are much different than they once were.  Most therapeutic programs and schools for troubled boys have some level of "behavioral modification" as a part of their purpose and function.  But very few therapeutic programs and schools fro troubled teens today use the traditional behavioral modification techniques (old school).  Most programs target behavioral modification as an "outcome" as opposed to an "approach" or "style". Behaviroal Modification Programs Troubled Boys

The entire idea, purpose, and goal of a residential clinical therapeutic school or program is "behavioral modification".  Parents want their troubled boy to stop rebelling, drop the defiance, cease using and abusing drugs, and start taking school seriously (thinking of their future).  When things get really bad (their son has spiraled out of control and he is facing serious consequences) and their son shows no signs that he wants to change parents look to "out-of-home" placements, such as therapeutic schools and programs.

Best Behavioral Modification Programs for Troubled Boys

When the situation gets scary parents look to residential treatment centers, therapeutic programs, drug and alcohol rehabs, wilderness programs, military schools, boot camps, and many other non-traditional options.  Why do they look to these types of programs?  Behavior modification, that's why!  Simply stated, parents want their son to change his behavior before its too late.

However, as stated above, the "old school" behavioral modification programs no longer exist in the US, and many of them have been "outlawed".  With a major push by child rights advocates, many of the early period programs (that came about in the 50.s, 60's, and 70's) have been shut down and replaced with residential treatment programs and therapeutic schools.  These new programs are regulated by the State, county, or city, and must make certain that they follow laws (regulations and procedures) that protect children.

Moreover, most of the best therapeutic programs are "private", and therefore they are beholden to the parents.  Meaning, since the parents are paying good money they had better work!  Most of the best schools and programs offer state-of-the-art therapeutic intervention, outstanding academics (grade repair and credit recovery), cutting-edge emotional growth (leadership development), and other incredible programs that help young men to overcome their issues and problems and excel in life.
