Each of our youth is assigned a master’s or doctoral level clinician who provides individual, group, and family therapy, as well as developing and providing oversight for individualized treatment plans (Individual Service Plan), the completion of a thorough and detailed psychosocial assessment and on-going evaluation and documentation of progress and development throughout treatment at Stetson School.
In addition, each student is assigned a bachelor’s or higher level case manager who actively oversees and coordinates care for each youth, serving as a primary liaison between Stetson School and families, and other external stakeholders.
Case managers, clinicians, and family specialists work closely with the treatment team to identify and meet the case needs of each individual youth.
Family psychoeducation educates parents and other family members about the treatment youth at Stetson.
Stetson School provides family psychoeducation for all parents. Psychoeducation teaches instructions, information, and methods involving psychological and psychosocial concepts in an educational format that utilizes a counseling approach. Family psychoeducation educates parents and other family members about the treatment youth at Stetson School.
Stetson School case managers provide psychoeducation to the family of each youth, most typically involving the parents and/or legal guardians, although other family members may also be involved. Although not every youth has an engaged or active family, and not every family is involved in the treatment of their child or will accept psychoeducation when offered, psychoeducation is offered to all eligible families, and families are encouraged to participate in the psychoeducational process, and every opportunity to do so is made available to families.
Family psychoeducation includes one or more parents, and the youth whenever possible, as well as other relevant and appropriate family members. Case managers work with external agency case workers to help families get to Stetson School in order to participate in family psychoeducation. Failing other means, it is possible to provide family psychoeducation by telephone or by video conferencing if available.
