Based on and integral to a Synergistic Model of Therapy (Bloom & Coopeman, 1999, 2002), The Weekend Workshop at The College of Saint Rose, Albany, NY provides a short-term, intensive program for children, teens, and adults that is integrated with a long-term maintenance program. Turnbaugh and Guitar (1981)  presented favorable results of a single subject’s treatment that combined short –term intensive therapy with long-term therapy for a public school child. Our collected data and follow up procedures with an average of 20 children each year, for 26 years, support their favorable results. The purpose of this paper is to summarize the goals, the format, and some of the therapy procedures utilized at the Weekend Workshop and our mentoring program.
