Mike Haarer, Vice President and Executive Director of Compass Rose Academy, presented at the Midwest Regional Conference of the National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs (NATSAP). His work on the Best Practices Committee encourages all residential facilities to work toward accreditation. Compass Rose has maintained accreditation since 2012 with the Council on Accreditation.

Also presenting were Madeline Spring, CRA’s Admissions Director, and Scott Makin, Executive Director of the Townsend Institute for Leadership and Counseling at Concordia University Irvine. This presentation is the fruit of a new initiative by Compass Rose to promote a deeper understanding of the therapeutic Growth Model at the heart of Compass Rose. Here’s what Madeline, CRA Admissions Director, said about it, “We had a blast using movie clips and music videos in our presentation on the Compass Rose Growth Model and how to use it with Memory Reconsolidation to bring healing to our clients and their families at deeper levels.”
