Psychiatric Evaluations & Medication Support Services

After spending time in counseling, a therapist or intervention specialist may recommend that the child receive a psychiatric evaluation.  When appropriate, the child and family will meet with a board-certified child psychiatrist for an evaluation to diagnose the child and determine if medication support services may be beneficial.

Time Limited Family Reunification


Time-Limited Family Reunification

Time-Limited Family Reunification (TLFR) helps qualifying families whose children have been removed by C.P.S. to reunify as quickly as possible. Each TLFR family has a care coordinator who becomes their advocate. The care coordinator identifies and helps them find resources, meet any needs they may have, develop a care plan, and becomes a support system throughout this difficult process. TLFR has access to emergency funds that may assist a family with items directly related to the return of their children, such as a bed, refrigerator, or rent deposit. Families may be referred by their social worker, parenting instructor, or care coordinator.

Visit Coaching

Visit coaching is a one-on-one parent coaching program in which the parent’s care coordinator helps the parent prepare for supervised visits with their children, assessing the children’s needs and planning activities, assisting the parent with problem-solving, supporting the parent through difficult separations, debriefing, and planning for

the next visit. During the 6-12 weeks of visit coaching, a family’s visits may be moved to the Child Guidance Clinic’s visitation area or other site. Care coordinators/Visit Coaches are resources for visitation activities, a shoulder to cry on, a safe sounding board for frustrations, a child development resource, a parenting coach, and a parent’s best cheerleader.
