Rogers Memorial Hospital
Beth Baus, Intake Specialist

The New Child Center (CC) at Rogers Memorial serving youngsters ages 8 to 11 has opened in response to families and referral sources clamoring for a residential program that offers more structure and treatment than intensive outpatient therapy can provide for youngsters with serious mental health issues. The program is the only residential setting in the country offering CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) as well as treatment for early onset eating disorders for this age group. The Center also serves complicated ADHD, bi-polar disorder, OCD and OC-spectrum disorders.

Intensive daily psychiatry and CBT are balanced with age-appropriate experiential and adventure therapy. Activities are designed to assess and diagnose issues as well as develop responsibility and acceptable coping skills. Located at the hospital's 50-acre Oconomowoc Campus, children have the opportunity to use the lake frontage, the ropes and challenge course, the indoor gym and climbing wall - and keep up with their schooling during the four to six weeks most children are enrolled in the program. Parent involvement is an important aspect of the program. Staff members work to help parents learn how to coach their children once they are back home.

Dr. Lauri Green, MD a board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrist and Karin Beal, a veteran behavior management specialist, are leading the CC team. Peter Lake, MD, also a board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrist, is the Medical Director at this campus.
