Outpatient Clinical Services

Outpatient services include assessment, crisis intervention, individual psychotherapy, family treatment, group therapy, parental guidance, education and skills training, advocacy and linkage to other services. Clinicians work closely with the youth, parents or other primary caretakers, and significant family members to address problems related to the youth’s behavior, social emotional needs and level of functioning. Clinicians will recognize and treat symptoms of anxiety, depression, PTSD, aggression and other psychological disorders with appropriate treatment modalities, including the implementation of evidence-based treatments. As necessary, clinicians work with other professionals involved with the youth and family (e.g. school, pediatrician, DCF worker, Probation officer, other providers, etc.).
