Adolescents in Alternative Education Settings
Date of Award
Alternate Education Settings (AES) are public school setting that meet the needs of highly at-risk youth. Adolescents who are enrolled in an alternative education setting often also have a mental health diagnosis; this group is often under-researched. Thus, this paper focuses on adolescents in different types of alternative education settings like Montessori, behavior-focused, and credit recovery programs. This review of the research discusses the qualifications to be in an alternative education setting, interventions to use with adolescents' in these schools who also might have a mental health diagnosis and finally the separate roles a counselor plays in the clients' life. With this information, counselors will be able to better treat adolescents who attend alternative schools.
