In-Home Therapy Services: This service is delivered by one or more members of a team consisting of professional and paraprofessional staff, offering a combination of medically necessary In-Home Therapy and Therapeutic Training and Support. In-Home Therapy is a structured, consistent, strength-based therapeutic relationship between a master’s level clinician and the youth and family for the purpose of treating the youth’s behavioral health needs, including improving the family’s ability to provide effective support for the youth to promote his/her healthy functioning within the family. Interventions are designed to enhance and improve the family’s capacity to improve the youth’s functioning in the home and community and may prevent the need for the youth’s admission to an inpatient hospital, psychiatric residential treatment facility or other treatment setting. The In-Home Therapy team (comprised of the qualified practitioner(s), family, and youth), develops a treatment plan and, using established psycho-therapeutic 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, limit-setting, risk management/safety planning, communication, build skills to strengthen the family, advance therapeutic goals, or improve ineffective patterns of interaction; identify and utilize community resources; develop and 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.
Must have a Master's degree and experience working with youth and families or must be in 2nd year of master's program with experience working with youth and families.
