Intensive Therapy for Youth and Families
Beyond Expectations Innovative Therapy begins with individualized service planning. We get to know each child and their family and develop a personalized plan to meet the unique challenges they face.
Our continuum of intensive therapy services are designed to help children and families:
- Work through unresolved issues
- Develop new methods of coping
- Learn behavior modification strategies
- Improve communication skills
- Build and strengthen relationships
- Avoid out of home placements
- Resolve conflicts
- Develop mechanisms to manage grief and loss
Beyond Expectations Innovative Therapy program includes:
Strengths & Needs Assessment: Our staff determines the child's current strengths, provides a provisional diagnosis and begins the development of an individualized service plan.
Therapy and Counseling Services: Through a range of services, our therapists infuse positive reinforcement, emotional support, role-playing, and crisis management.
- Mentoring: We include mentoring in our BE-IT program to help youth develop healthy relationships with responsible, caring adults. These caring role models spend quality time with each child through a variety of outings and activities.
