What Does Treatment Look Like?

The first 30 days the team will assess the needs of the family and child; this includes gathering information from the family and from other agencies involved.

The Family Based Team will work closely with the parents and child to develop a 

treatment plan that is relevant to the family.

The team will meet with the family 2-3 times a week, and treatment will include 

family and individual sessions.

The team can provide treatment to all children in the family who may have the need.

Focus of treatment is on the relationships within the family, and the parents are an 

integral part of treatment.
