In 2015 G.L.O.M. has began our Mobile Therapy Services where our licensed therapist are dispatched to homes of foster care families where we provide therapy and case management services to youth who have been placed in foster homes. These services are meant to provide support to foster parent and the children to ensure proper unification and mental health support to children who need or have been previously diagnosed with and mental or behavior disorder. Our mobile therapist also provide services to the adult populations in the various counties we serve.
The In-Home Therapy team with the family identifies behavioral treatment goals then delivers focused interventions to enhance individual and family problem-solving, implement clear and consistent limits, create strategies to maintain safety and manage risk factors, develop effective communication and coping skills, and identify and build natural/community-based supports to improve overall functioning of all family members.
The Clinician and Therapeutic Training and Support staff further implement the therapeutic goals by identifying and providing education about relevant resources, advocating for the youth and family’s needs within the community, coordinating care with other providers, completing referrals for beneficial services and providing transportation.
