CHILDREN’S THERAPEUTIC PARTIAL CARE DAY PROGRAM

For over 35 years, MHCP has provided high quality mental health services and intensive day treatment for children and families.   Our children’s programs provide a highly specialized, intensive treatment approach that includes daily support and encouragement, behavioral group therapy, individual therapy, psychiatric evaluation and monitoring, and individual and family intervention.

Children who are exhibiting behavioral and emotional difficulties at home, in the classroom or in the community can get the support and tools they need for improving social interactions, coping with stress, managing emotion and self-regulation.

Our goal is to provide a structured treatment environment in which daily activities and interactions are therapeutically designed for the purpose of building developmentally appropriate social skills, coping skills, self-expression and self-confidence for children between the ages of 2 ½ and 11 years old.

Does your 2 ½ -6-year-old child struggle with any of the following:

Social and interpersonal skills

Appropriate peer relations

Anger management

Impulse control and focus

Appropriate self-expression

Problem-solving skills

Our compassionate and creative staff at the Ida Gurtman Therapeutic Children’s Programs provide a fun and positive atmosphere for children.  Through a series of structured and creative group activities, our clients are introduced to the therapeutic tools they need for developing social skills and improved social interaction, coping with stress and frustration, identifying and expressing emotions and self-regulation.  Steady therapeutic chatter and praise in the group room provide the reinforcement necessary for our clients to feel good about their accomplishments and progress.  Parent sessions provide parents with strategies and interventions that can be implemented at home and in the classroom so parents can participate in their child’s progress.  Our board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrist provides psychiatric evaluation and monitoring, as well as medication intervention when needed.

PARTIAL CARE PROGRAM FOR CHILDREN AGES 6-11

Does this sound like your child?

My child struggles to keep focus…

My child lacks self-confidence…

My child worries about everything…

My child talks back to adults, and has no respect for authority…

My child is aggressive and gets in trouble at school often…

My child has been psychiatrically hospitalized…

If so, you are not alone. Our Partial Care 6-11 Program can help children ages 6-11 who have been psychiatrically hospitalized, or who are at risk of psychiatric hospitalization. Our program provides a safe and healing environment for your child to work through problems experienced in the home, in school or in the community. The caring and innovative staff uses creative and interactive methods to help your child achieve identified goals. PC 6-11 is an after-school, year-round intensive therapeutic program that offers treatment tailored to the specific needs of both the child and family.  Family involvement is key; our caring staff works with families to ensure that skills and goals are achieved and reinforced.  Small steps everyday…Let’s get started!
