Community Integration

     The Community Integration program at CPT supports residents in developing the skills needed to successfully enter back into society. Qualified residents have the opportunity to attend weekly outings that are accompanied by staff. These outings prepare residents to have positive and constructive experiences in the community upon their discharge from CPT. Residents work on skills such as:
-Appropriate socialization: Residents work on social interaction with peers, staff, and community members. -Eating meals in the community: Residents practice ordering from a menu, having appropriate table manners, and polite dinner conversations. -Navigating resources: Residents visit local colleges, libraries, farmer’s markets, and other community events to learn about what is offered and accessible within the community.
-Money management: Residents practice purchasing items, budgeting, interacting with staff and cashiers, and creating a shopping list.
-Recreation and relaxing: Residents work on their leisure skills at lake outings, arcades, driving ranges, parks, and bowling alleys. Our residents have been successful in attending major outings such as: Great America, San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park, California State Railroad Museum, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Northern California Renaissance Fair, as well as many others!

Therapeutic Groups

Therapeutic groups at CPT provide the necessary structure and support to help residents learn skills, discover new interests and talents, express emotions in a safe way, and work on independent projects.

-Expressive arts therapy groups:
Residents are able to engage in the creative process through art modalities such as visual art, music, writing, dance, drama, and storytelling.
Art Therapy: Art therapy is a therapeutic modality in which an art therapist works with individuals to create visual art in a therapeutic setting. Both the process of the art making and the resulting art product can be important areas to reflect on. At CPT, art therapy groups help our residents express emotions in a safe way, from managing anger through pounding out clay, to using watercolors to depict a calming image. Art therapy is also used at CPT to help residents confront behavioral issues, and reconcile deeper emotional conflicts.
Music Therapy: Music therapy is an evidence-based therapeutic modality that utilizes music as the therapeutic agent of change. Music therapy can be used to foster a positive therapeutic relationship, develop self-realization, and encourage personal growth. CPT offers music therapy groups, as well as individual sessions. Some of the interventions utilized include: group sing-a-longs, drum circles, song writing, instrument play, and lyrical analysis.
Drama Therapy: Drama therapy is the intentional use of drama and/or theater processes to achieve therapeutic goals. This active and experiential approach provides the context for CPT residents to tell their stories, set goals and solve problems, express feelings, develop empathy, foster feelings of empowerment and confidence, and create community. Through drama therapy, the depth and breadth of inner experience can be actively explored and interpersonal relationship skills can be enhanced. At CPT, drama therapy interventions include role play, puppetry, mask work, improvisation, creative writing, and expressive movement.

-Activity groups:
 Groups such as leisure, karaoke, and board games help residents engage socially with their peers, practice structuring their independent time, have fun, distract from symptoms, and learn something new.

-Educational groups:
Educational groups provide residents with an opportunity to open their minds to something new, stay connected to the world, reflect on spirituality, and learn. These groups include history, literature, sex education, and many others.

-Skill-building groups:
Residents practice important skills to help them manage and cope with mental illness, and provide opportunities for recovery. These groups include stress management, assertiveness training, relapse prevention, social skills, and coping tools

Themed Community Events

Residents participate in large-scale facility wide events that are intended to build community, educate, boost morale, provide an opportunity for larger-scale creative expression, and support residents in developing social abilities in a larger group setting. Some of our events include:
Diversity Fair: Residents and staff create a poster board identifying aspects of their personal heritage and spend a day presenting them to each other. This creates a safer and more tolerable community, and helps us to learn more about one another – all while practicing public speaking skills!
CPT Olympics: Residents are split into groups to compete in a variety of field day games and activities, This event helps residents successfully work on a team and have fun doing something active.

King’s Theater Talent Show: Residents are able to showcase their unique talents and creative abilities with a supportive audience.
Themed Dances: Residents have the opportunity to attend several dances throughout the year. Residents enjoy socializing and dancing with one another as well as participating in other games and activities available at the event. Some examples of dances have been: Halloween, western, tropical, and the 80’s.
Major Holidays: CPT celebrates all major holidays, and honors the holiday traditions of our residents. Residents have the opportunity to participate in celebrations throughout the year, and learn about holidays that they may not be familiar with.

Vocational Rehabilitation

The vocational rehabilitation (voc rehab) program provides opportunities for residents to learn and practice work-related skills while under the supervision of staff. Residents participating in voc rehab have a “job” at the facility in which they are able to earn points for. During voc rehab, residents work on gardening, housekeeping, organization, decorating, clerical tasks, as well as brainstorming ideas to future CPT events. Gardening is the largest component to our voc rehab program. Residents enjoy caring for several flowers and plants around the facility, as well as in four raised planter beds. Our staff also coach residents on career exploration, resume building, and developing social skills that are appropriate to the work environment. CPT will soon be adding a computer lab to our facility to train residents on various computer programs, allow them to become proficient in typing, and practice applying for employment online.
