Therapeutic Mentoring Services
Therapeutic Mentoring Services are provided to youth (under the age of 21) in any setting where the youth reside, such as the home (including foster homes), and in other community settings such as school, childcare centers, respite settings, and other culturally and linguistically appropriate community settings.
Therapeutic Mentoring offers structured, one-to-one, strength-based support services between a therapeutic mentor and a youth for the purpose of addressing daily living, social, and communication needs. Therapeutic Mentoring services include supporting, coaching, and training the youth in age-appropriate behaviors, interpersonal communication, problem-solving and conflict resolution, and relating appropriately to other children and adolescents, as well as adults, in recreational and social activities pursuant to a behavioral health treatment plan developed by our clinical team.
These services help to ensure the youth’s success in navigating various social contexts, leaning new skills and making functional progress, while the Therapeutic Mentor offers supervision of these interactions and engages the youth in discussions about strategies for effective handling of peer interactions.
