This no-cost service is provided in connection with any services that we've provided and is designed for the post-service time interval, for it is during this crucial period that strides made during services are reinforced. Aftercare treatment helps to reduce relapse in behaviors and expands upon the coping strategies learned during services. Aftercare entails far less frequent contact with the service provider personnel than during the duration of services; therefore, it approximates a more real-life situation of self-sufficiency, individual determination and hard work in maintaining one's own self-efficacy. So we, the service provider, are in contact 30 to 60 days after services have expired to monitor and detect any impending or recent regressions. During aftercare, follow-up documentation will also be provided to the appropriate sources to determine if a re-evaluation is necessary.
The goal of this service is to provide youth and/or families with healthy ways and coping mechanisms when dealing with grief and loss. Grief manifests itself in various ways, and everyone expresses grief differently. We work with grieving individuals in a variety of settings (e.g. the death of a loved one during their formative years, developing academic identity, the transition of a parent out of the home, learning to resolve conflict, engaging in first romantic relationships, the loss of a sibling, crisis, etc). Additional goals for this service include identifying ways to support the youth, sharing healthy methods that will allow them to cope and express their emotions effectively, acting as a support system for the youth, and developing an intervention plan that will aid the youth in overcoming the circumstances.
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a “well-supported” program supported by the Family First Act and Title IV-E funding. This evidence-based practice that we use is designed to promote behavior change in youth and adults to improve physiological, psychological and lifestyle results. MI aims to identify uncertainties for change and increase motivation by helping clients progress through multiple stages of change. It aims to do this by encouraging clients to consider their personal goals and how their current behaviors may compete with the attainment of those goals. MI uses clinical strategies to help clients identify reasons to change their behavior and reinforce that behavior change is possible.
