The goal of therapy is to reduce the risk of abuse/neglect in families through providing mental health therapy that focuses on strengthening family protective factors such as communication, family functioning/resiliency, emotional support and regulation, substance use recovery, concrete support, nurturing and attachment and knowledge of parenting and childhood development.
Clinicians work with individuals and families to determine what their needs are related to the above factors. At every visit and throughout treatment, safety and risk assessments are made and services are adjusted to meet needs.
The family’s treatment plan reflects a balance of identified needs and strengths. Clinicians collaborate with families to develop an individualized treatment plan, leveraging the unique culture and strengths of each family while tailoring goals that address their needs.
