What Is School-Based Therapy?
School-Based Therapy is traditional Outpatient Therapy, provided in a school setting. This allows clients, who are in need of services, easier access to therapeutic services. School-Based Therapy includes the use of Evidenced-Based Practices, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing, to help assist clients with reaching their behavioral goals.
Who Can Benefit From This Service?
School-Based Therapy benefits K-12 children, who have emotional and behavioral difficulties, in the school and home setting.
How Does It Work?
The appropriate school officials request a referral for a potential client. After intake has been completed, the client’s guardians are contacted to schedule an appointment. During the appointment, we review the proper clinical documentation, which includes a Diagnostic Assessment, to determine the medical necessity of services. Once approved, the client’s guardian is contacted and informed of the approved services, the assigned clinician, and the service location.
We provide easy access to the necessary mental health treatment, for individuals facing certain barriers. We encourage relationships between the clinician and school officials, as it pertains to family involvement, to assist those in need.
