Provides flexible, culturally competent in-home and community-based therapy and treatment services that work to build positive family relational patterns and reduce disruptive behaviors. The overarching goal of the program is to prevent out of home placement of children and adolescents when possible, and to reunite children and adolescents with their families if out of home placements have taken place.
In-home treatment includes 24-hour on-call crisis intervention service by phone and collaborative treatment by a multi-disciplinary team of professionals who coordinate services with schools, hospitals, treatment facilities and other service providers.
Clients are children and adolescents with a severe emotional disturbance – usually living in families experiencing multiple stressors and with inadequate crisis or coping skills to deal with those stressors.
Family problems include emotional, sexual or physical abuse; delinquency; severe truancy; parenting problems; acting out behaviors in the home, school or community; and mental/emotional health difficulties that create problems with day to day functioning. Therapy services are provided by co-therapy teams working intensively with families for up to six months.
