The Emotional Support Program is a temporary placement to assist students in returning successfully to their home school. This program provides on-site therapy services by a Licensed Mental Health professional on staff. In conjunction with the reasons for referral and the student’s Individual Education Plan, the therapist utilizes the DSM-5 assessments to help create the individual treatment plan and tailor the identified student’s treatment needs. Utilizing the lens of the Trauma Based Model for treatment, typical interventions include but are not limited to: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, stress reduction, motivational interviewing, social skills development, and self-awareness/self-confidence building. Engagement with families and other service providers is an essential component to therapeutic services as well.
