Individual, Group & Family Therapy
Case Management & Service Coordination
Behavioral health counseling and therapy is a therapeutic interaction with the person served focusing on the treatment needs. Services are structured sessions to work towards the obtainment of mutually defined treatment goals.
Mental Health Day Treatment is an intensive service offered at multiple days a week, several hours a day for youth with extensive challenges. It is designed to assist with developing skills, managing behaviors to enhance opportunities for success in school/employment and independent living, and to provide interventions to improve treatment outcomes.
Case management and service coordination involves the provision of an array of services to assist in addressing the individual’s behavioral health needs. Services address specific individualized services to focus on improving the individual’s ability to function in the community, help identify and access needed services, and improve the individual's functioning in school, home, and community environment.
Individualized Treatment Plan
The Individualized Treatment Plan is the result of a collaborative process between the clinical service provider and the person served, based on the diagnostic assessment and the successful identification of interventions and services.
Therapeutic Family Style QRTP are offered using the Teaching-Family model (TFM). Teaching Family technology provides positive reinforcement programming in a family-based environment shaping behavior through immediate and continual teaching. Intervention techniques center on motivation systems that is used to identify pre-behaviors and the prevention of intensive behavioral interactions. Earned privileges and praise are the motivators of change. One key component of the model is the belief that for change to be sustainable, the motivation for the change needs to be internal. External motivators are tied and eventually weaned as the youth finds praise, pride, and increase self-worth motivators for change. Being community is a “classroom”, an opportunity for continual growth and learning in a safe environment. Based upon individual needs, and guardian approval, youth are provided opportunities for normal childhood experiences so that they can learn from their successes and their failures.
