herapeutic Mentoring offers structured, one-to-one, strength-based support services between a Therapeutic Mentor and a youth (up to the age of 21) to support a specific goal on the child’s behavioral treatment plan such as developing social skills, interpersonal skills, problem solving strategies, or daily living skills.
Therapeutic Mentoring is designed to give children and teens the opportunity for skill building through experiences that would naturally occur in their everyday life, at their home, foster home, childcare center, or other setting. To help the child develop a specified skill, their Therapeutic Mentor works to model, educate, motivate, and coach them on how to use and practice overcoming obstacles related to these skills.
Services are provided in any setting where the youth resides, such as the home (including foster homes and therapeutic foster homes), and in community settings, such as schools, child care centers, respite settings, as well as other culturally and linguistically appropriate community settings.
Therapeutic Mentoring services include:
Coaching, supporting and training the youth in age-appropriate behaviors
Interpersonal communication, conflict resolution, problem-solving
Relating appropriately to other children, adolescents, and adults, in recreational and social activities pursuant to a behavioral-health treatment plan developed by an outpatient, or In-Home Therapy provider in concert with the family, and youth whenever possible, or pursuant to an Individual Care Plan (ICP) for youth with Intensive Care Coordination (ICC).
