Therapeutic Behavioral Services is designed to help children, youth, parents and caregivers manage challenging behaviors utilizing short-term interventions to achieve measurable goals based on the needs of the child or teen and the family. TBS helps the child learn new adaptive behaviors and skills to replace dysfunctional or dangerous ones, and is delivered in the child’s everyday living environment. Used in conjunction with other mental health services that the youth is receiving from a counseling/clinical treatment team, TBS can make the difference in decreasing behavior or symptoms that are jeopardizing a child’s current living situation. It can also help a child make a successful transition to a lower level of care. The short-term and behavior focused treatment, along with requirements for tracking progress, allows for continuous monitoring of goals and interventions for efficacy in service. We often see great progress in our TBS clients over a very short period of time.
