TRAUMA INFORMED DAY TREATMENT
Trauma Informed Day Treatment (TIDTx) is a program of Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health (C&A) that integrates mental health and educational interventions. This therapeutic environment provides a continu- um of services designed to assess, treat and reduce severe emotional and/or behavioral disturbances in youth who have experienced trauma.
TIDTx program is appropriate for youth who have been assessed across many areas of their lives (home, school, community, so- cial and personal) and have been determined to have a severe emotional and/or behavioral disturbance which requires intensive, thera- peutic intervention. Youth receive individual, family, group and milieu therapy based on needs identified in the comprehensive trauma assessment. Our treatment environment offers youth the opportunity to learn and rehearse behavioral change while receiving guidance, supportive feedback and reinforcement in a physically and emotionally safe setting. This promotes the development of effective self regulation , problem-solving, coping and socialization skills.
Based on mental health needs and family interest, psychiatric services and case management are additional services that may be accessed at C&A.
