These kind of diagnoses tell the
story of girls’ lives. Whether CINA
or delinquent, our girls at Toledo
come from family systems that are
broken. Deficits in families
translate into deficits in children.
Common family dynamics for our
girls include:
Family Dynamics:
single parent family/incarcerated
parent/terminated parental rights
substance abuse
domestic violence
inconsistent parenting
lack of routine and consistent
expectations
requirement of age inappropriate
responsibilities
lack of problem solving skills
poor modeling of socially
appropriate behavior
sexual abuse/physical abuse
lack of boundaries in
relationships
lack of healthy intimacy and
connectedness w/ others
         What Do We Do?
In order to see permanent change,
 we must treat the whole person.
  This requires a partnership that
  provides a safe, structured and
  predictable living environment
 coupled w/ a treatment approach
that recognizes what happened in
  your PAST is what drives how
        you behave today.
