Therapeutic Day Treatment

Therapeutic Day Treatment is a program that provides a combination of therapeutic services and evaluation within the traditional school setting to student’s exhibiting emotional and behavioral concerns that hinder their ability to function successfully in the school environment. Therapeutic Day Treatment Counselors work with students in the educational setting to decrease disruptive behavior, increase focus, assist students in exhibiting age appropriate classroom behavior, and other emotional/behavioral needs. In Therapeutic Day Treatment we assess treatment needs, complete diagnostic evaluations, and utilize evidence-based therapeutic techniques. The  goal of Therapeutic Day Treatment is to support students and teachers, allowing all students to learn and teachers to teach. We work with teachers and administration to reduce the need to remove a student from the classroom environment, reduce office interventions, and prevent out of school placement. Funding for Therapeutic Day Treatment can often be secured through Medicaid or other sources.

Curriculum

FPS incorporates the evidenced-based curriculum Skill-streaming into our Therapeutic Day Treatment programs. Skill-streaming provides systematic interventions that promote prosocial skill development. The program implements social learning techniques according to individual development to increase prosocial behavior and generalization of skills to other settings.

Skillstreaming employs pre and post skills assessment and a four-part training approach to teach essential prosocial skills to students through:

  • Modeling
  • Role Playing
  • Performance Feedback
  • Generalization

Outcomes

FPS believes that we are only as good as our outcomes. To ensure viability and the efficacy of our programming, data on each student is collected throughout the school year. This data includes a review of the annual progress in prosocial skills development, as well as progress/monitoring of administrative and clinical areas.

Therapeutic Day Treatment provides each of these services in balance with the child’s needs:

1: Group therapy (problem solving, anger management, impulse control, etc.)
2: Case coordination and collaboration with families, schools and community partners
3: Prosocial skills development to enhance social and interpersonal skills
4: Medication education and management
5: Individual and family psychotherapy
6: Daily behavior modification
7: Crisis treatment
8: Direct time spent in the classroom with the child

Summer Program

FPS also offers a Therapeutic Day Treatment Summer Program devoted to maintaining, sustaining and increasing the prosocial skills learned by students during the school year. The continued mental health needs of these students are addressed through recreation, art, music and drama. Community outings are provided as clinically necessary to enhance individual treatment. The purpose of outings are multifaceted to include: appropriate communication skills, social skills, behavior regulation training, etc.
