Collaborate Intensive Bridging Services (CIBS)
Research shows that a child is best treated with their family, in their home. Our Collaborate Intensive Bridging Services are based on this approach. The treatment model involves a combination of intensive in-home therapy and a brief placement in an intensive residential treatment center, and it’s designed to help kids who struggle with:
- Acting out in-home or school
- And more
Our program is designed to help:
- Stabilize the child’s behavior so they can live at home and access community-based services.
- Equip parents to support their child and the rest of the family.
- Improve the family’s ability to manage a crisis.
- Streamline services and minimize the confusion of having multiple service providers across differing stages of treatment.
Families in this program experience a three-part approach, over the course of six to nine months:
First, we provide therapy to the child and family in their home or another community setting to help prepare them for residential treatment.
While the child is in a residential treatment placement (usually for 30–45 days), we provide in-home therapy to support and equip the family.
And finally, after the child returns home, we continue to provide in-home therapy to the child and family, to support a smooth transition and ongoing success.
Parents who choose to participate must be willing to stay involved with their child’s treatment program—and with their own therapy as well. This includes engaging with their child during their residential treatment (calls, home visits, therapy sessions, etc.) and participating in in-home therapy before, during, and after the stay.
Early Childhood Therapy
When a child is hurting or acting out, the whole family is affected. We know young children need special care and attention to overcome the challenges they are having, and we’re here to help. We specialize in supporting small children who struggle with emotional and behavioral disturbances caused by mental health disorders, neurological vulnerabilities, and traumatic experiences, including abuse, neglect, exposure to domestic violence, exposure to drugs or alcohol, disrupted attachments to adults, and significant changes in the family.
These issues can sometimes cause:
- Defiant behavior
- Aggressive tantrums/anger management
- Attachment issues
- School issues
- Emotional regulation
To address these issues, young children attend our program for three hours a day, four days a week. We focus on helping them form trusting, secure attachments to their parents or primary caregivers, which is crucial to their development.
In addition, we help them develop adaptive coping, problem-solving, and social skills so that they can regulate their emotions and better control their behavior.
Families have a strong involvement in our program and receive support and guidance to help them transfer these positive coping skills to the home.
This program includes a range of services and treatments, including:
- Individual and family therapy
- Play therapy
- Training for parents, child care providers, and schools
- Support and consultations at daycare centers and schools
- Coordination with other providers
- PASS Day Treatment (see below)
