Allen County Children Services is taking on a new therapy to help troubled children build social skills and it's not your standard therapy.

It's called Adventure Therapy and it gets children moving and thinking. These counselors are learning interactive activities that engage children in active learning instead of classroom lecture. Children going through the therapy have experienced some type of trauma that has affected them in some way. They will utilize teamwork and communication skills while completing tasks which improve upon their social skills without dwelling on the past.
