  • Overview

    Bilingual (Spanish/English) TBS Clinician in the Therapeutic Behavioral Services (TBS) program provides short-term and intensive behaviorally-focused services for youth ages 3-21, who are engaging in behaviors that place them at risk of a higher level of care. Through time-limited, one-to-one behavioral interventions, TBS provides the child with skills to effectively manage the behaviors that are jeopardizing his/her placement in the lowest appropriate level of care. 

    TBS sessions are scheduled in accordance with the child and family's needs, with interventions developed based on the family's specific skills, values, and strengths to promote sustainable change. As the youth reaches the initial TBS behavioral goal, a transition plan is set in place to ensure sustainability of the treatment progress, and a graduation celebration is organized to acknowledge the achievements of the youth and family.
