(Edmonds, WA) March 12, 2014 – Dr. Gregg Jantz, Founder of The Center • A Place of HOPE, and co-author of his recent bestseller Raising Boys By Design: What the Bible and Brain Science Reveal About What Your Son Needs to Thrive, will deliver his keynote presentation at the annual Royal Rangers “Lead” Conference in Dallas on March 14th. He will speak on the wonder of raising young boys and the unique challenges facing parents, teachers and counselors.

Packed with humor as well as doable strategies for those committed to raising and positively influencing boys, Dr. Jantz will deliver eye-opening examples of what’s really going on inside a boy’s brain. Based on both neurological studies of a boy’s brain – and how it differs from that of a girl’s – and biblical insights, Dr. Jantz will lead the attendees of the Royal Rangers National “Lead” Conference on a journey of discovery and guidance on how to develop young boys into productive and positive young men.

“Eighty percent of the D’s and F’s given in school today are received by boys. Boys are three times more likely than girls to be diagnosed with a learning disorder. We face challenges in how we are raising our young boys. Raising Boys by Design helps parents and teachers understand the differences of the boy’s brain and how it affects their behavior and their ability to learn.

Our studies provide us with powerful tools to improve the way we understand and teach our young boys. They have great application to those teaching and raising young girls as well. I look forward to a great evening with those committed to nurturing and developing young boys and girls at the Royal Rangers Lead Conference,” Dr. Jantz said.

e Newsmax organization. The survey, which was based on patient feedback and internet research, ranked the top ten treatment centers for depression treatment in America run by private organizations. The Center, which was founded by mental health expert and best-selling author Dr. Gregory Jantz, Ph.D., also offers treatment programs for a variety of other issues including eating disorders, OCD, PTSD, anxiety, sex addiction and more. Its place at the top of the Newsmax survey speaks volumes as to the effectiveness of A Place of Hope’s unique “whole-person” approach to treatment.

In their review, Newsmax revealed some of the criteria by which the best run treatment programs were chosen, saying good depression treatment centers generally include:

  • A holistic therapy set-up that provides a diet and exercise plan
  • Counseling sessions
  • Talk therapy sessions
  • Recommended medications,
  • Motivational tapes and other materials

“Being ranked at the top of this important survey is a great honor for A Place of Hope,” says Dr. Jantz. “Depression is a growing issue in America and around the world, and the quick fix of chemical solutions is not addressing the issue in a real way. It is important to focus on healing the whole person, and that means addressing the emotional, environmental, relational, physical, and spiritual causes of an individual’s depression.”

The Center for Counseling and Health Resources offers a whole-person approach to treatment for depression as well as a host of other issues. Patients at The Center benefit from a custom plan of treatment and a diverse staff of specialists that allow for an exploration of the psychological, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, nutritional and relational issues at play. The Center’s partial hospitalization/day treatment program accomplishes in four weeks of six-day-a-week intervention what would take over a year or more to accomplish in one hour weekly of outpatient therapy.
