BRIDGES uses a comprehensive team approach. Each client/student receives services based on an individualized treatment plan developed by their therapist, the client/student, parent(s)/guardian(s), school personnel and our team of treatment professionals. Every treatment plan is approved by our Medical Director, who is a licensed psychiatrist.
BRIDGES offers psychotherapy services from Master’s level clinicians. To ensure we are offering the most up-to-date and effective treatment, we train and expect our clinicians to utilize evidence-based therapy practices. Each week, every client/student will receive the following services: 1 hour of individual therapy, 1 hour of family therapy and 2 hours of group therapy from a therapist (clinician).
Family therapy is designed and catered to meet the family’s needs; For example, family therapy appointments are on a flexible schedule to assist families in being able to attend their sessions.
In addition to psychotherapy sessions, clients/students also participate in a minimum of 12 hours of group rehabilitation services. These groups are facilitated by a Certified Behavioral Health Case Manager (BHCM II), requiring a minimum of a bachelor’s degree.
Rehabilitation groups utilize an evidence based curriculum that addresses the following topics: social skills, anger management, emotional expression, communication, problem-solving, skills needed to be school ready, and many more.
Our integrated, evidenced-based therapy treats serious emotional and/or behavioral problems in young people. Our goal is to give children and youth a safe, supportive environment to heal, move forward and transition back to their school site.
