Program activities employ a behavior modification plan and token economy system. Clients earn points based on individual and group treatment goals which they trade in for chosen reinforcers following activities four to five times per day. 

Each child’s treatment plan includes four common goals— example ( but limited to) use of respectful language, using your words to express what you are feeling, listening and following instructions, postive self statements and participating during each activity— as well as three customized goals based on their individual needs. 

In addition to the evidence-based therapies and expressive art therapies, both programs include a holistic healing component. The Day Program is designed for individuals who are in need of a comprehensive, short-term, intensive level of care in order to prevent inpatient hospitalization or as a step down from an inpatient program. Clients who attend the Day Program are generally experiencing acute psychological symptoms that are difficult to manage. Clients who attend do not require 24-hour mental health treatment. The Day Program includes individual, group and family therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Mindfulness exercise, psychiatric and psychological evaluation consultation, parent training, academic instruction, and a variety of other evidence-based therapies designed for individual treatment and success. We cater our programs to suit the needs of our client. To receive more information, contact Stepping Forward Counseling Center today!
