Our Mentoring program carefully matches a mentor with a child or groups of up to 3 siblings. We complete an Intake Goal Checklist to identify any deficits or needs that can be addressed. Our function is to access home or community-based instruction related to health, personal development, social development, and life skills, and/or positive recreational activities. These activities may include playing in the local community centers/parks to build peer relationships, introducing to new sports, fishing, and/or reading together, etc. Another important function is for the children to be paired with free community resources that can be accessible even after closure.
Therapists with Coastal Behavioral Therapy, Inc., promote self-growth while addressing root causes of client’s concerns, issues and symptoms. We are dedicated to modeling a healthy and positive relationship experience, while redirecting self-defeating behavior to allow client’s full potential to become realized. Therapists encourage increased insight and understanding within each individual, assist clients and families to explore alternatives for communication, and empower clients to make more effective choices for coping with a wide variety of stressors.
Identifying why behaviors occur and how we can replace those behaviors with more socially appropriate ones to achieve the same function is our primary goal. Our program helps parents make changes to the environment, help identify “triggers” to maladaptive behaviors, and tweak how they respond to these behaviors to avoid accidental reinforcement. We give the parents the skills needed to maintain the child’s positive behavior change. Parents are encouraged to be active participants to increase the probability of success.
