Therapeutic mentoring interventions are also designed to include appropriate participation in recreational, athletic, artistic, educational, vocational and social activities. The Therapeutic Mentor delivers services with an existing outpatient or in-home therapy treatment plan that is jointly developed with input from the parent/caregiver/ school personnel or significant persons in the youth’s life.
