Being a Bi-Lingual Family Based Therapist at Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health has its Advantages
As a Family Based Therapist at our Phoenixville office, you will be involved in creating a focused and customized treatment plan to serve the needs of children, adolescents and their families. Our Treatment approach revolves around an ESFT clinical model.
Family Based Services strives to keep children and youth, ages 2 to 21 with significant mental and emotional health challenges, living successfully with their families in their own communities. This program incorporates families and caregivers in the treatment process to ensure a child’s positive involvement at home, school or within the community – and to reduce the possibility of placement in residential treatment, psychiatric hospitals, or foster placements.
To reach this goal, clinicians visit children and families within their home. Parents acquire effective management skills and approaches to improve the child’s well-being, while the child or young adult learns skills to become successful in school, follow directions at home, develop and maintain positive relationships within the community, and reach expected emotional, social and academic achievements.
