Therapeutic Mentoring

Therapeutic Mentoring – Mentors develop structured, one-to-one, supportive relationship with youth to address daily living, social, and communication needs. The support is based on the behavioral health treatment plan developed by the provider in partnership with the family and youth, or on the Individual Care Plan (ICP) for youth with ICC. Support is provided at the youth’s residence or other community setting such as school, child care centers, respite, or a culturally/linguistically appropriate community setting. Services include: training, coaching and supporting the youth in age-appropriate behaviors; interpersonal communication; problem-solving and conflict resolution; and in relating appropriately to other youth and adults in recreational and social activities. Youth learn to navigate various social situations, learn new skills and make functional progress. The mentor offers supervision of these interactions and engage the youth in discussions about strategies for effective handling of peer interactions. Exclusions: Youth who display behavior that may pose an imminent risk to harm self or others, or who require a more intensive service beyond community-based intervention.
