Milieu Therapy

Milieu therapy is a style of therapy used to treat large numbers of people with similar disorders, largely behavioral disorders. It provides a structured environment that can be controlled or manipulated with an aim to eliminate or reduce self-destructive behavior. In this style of psychotherapy (normally lasting 9-18 months) patients are grouped into "cohorts" of around thirty individuals, all of whom are in different stages of treatment. The senior members of the cohort are encouraged to take responsibility for providing guidance and role modeling for the less senior members of the cohort.
