Emma Pendleton Bradley Hospital is a private, nonprofit, 60-bed psychiatric hospital for emotionally disturbed children and youth. It is located on 40 acres of attractive woodland facing Narrangansett Bay, 15 minutes drive from the Brown University campus.
Bradley Hospital treatment facilities include four inpatient units, three day
hospital programs, an early childhood development program, and an outpatient
clinic. The diagnostic, therapeutic and consultative orientation of these programs
derives from a transactional biopsychosocial model. The child, adolescent, and
developmental disabilities inpatient units utilize milieu therapy, psychoeducation,
medication, behavior therapy, occupational and recreational therapy, and individual,
group and family psychotherapy. Guided by a similar clinical-theoretical model,
the day hospital programs for children and adolescents provide comparable integrated
services with a somewhat greater emphasis on psychoeducation, behavioral therapy,
and long-term psychotherapies. The Charles Bradley Early Childhood Development
Program includes a therapeutic nursery school, therapeutic and skill training
groups for parents and young children, and intensive individual, parent-child,
and family treatment for early childhood disorders. The Day Hospital for developmentally
disabled youngsters provides an intensive behavior therapy psychoeducational
program and includes individual, family and pharmacologic therapy. The Outpatient
Clinic offers triage, evaluation, crisis intervention services, comprehensive
assessments, second-opinion consultations and specialized services which emphasize
short- and long-term psychotherapy.
