In-Home Therapy

mother daughters 01Mental Health is a state of successful mental functioning, resulting in productive activities, fulfilling relationships, and the ability to adapt to change and cope with adversity. Mental Health is indispensable to personal well-being, family and interpersonal relationships, and one’s contribution to society.

In-Home Therapy is a service under the Child Behavioral Health Initiative (CBHI). It is a structured, consistent, strength-based therapeutic relationship between a clinician and the youth and family for the purpose of treating the youth’s behavioral health needs.

Interventions are designed to enhance a family’s capacity to support the youth’s functioning in the home and community, and prevent the youth’s admission to an inpatient hospital. The service includes improving the family’s ability to provide effective support for the youth to promote his/ her healthy functioning within the family.

This service is delivered by one or more members of a team offering a combination of medically necessary training and support.

Techniques

The In-Home Therapy team (comprised of qualified practitioner(s), family and youth), develop a treatment plan and, using established psychotherapeutic techniques and intensive family therapy, works with the entire family or a subset of the family to implement focused interventions and behavioral techniques to:

  • Enhance problem solving
  • Develop limit setting
  • Outline risk management/safety planning
  • Increase communication
  • Build skills to strengthen the family
  • Advance therapeutic goals
  • Increase effective patterns of interaction
  • Identify and utilize community resources
  • Maintain natural supports for the youth and parent/caregiver(s) in order to promote sustainability of treatment gains.

Phone contact and consultation are provided as part of the intervention.
