Saint Joseph's Children's Home


INDIVIDUAL PSYCHOTHERAPY

St. Joseph's Children's Home residents are routinely assigned an individual therapist at the time of admisson.  Individual therapy sessions are held with the child or adolescent one to two times per week.  Frequency of sessions is often increased during times of crisis and, more routinely, with younger residents and developmentally delayed or highly distractible residents.  A Cognitive Behavioral approach is most frequently utilized in the context of individual therapy, geared to the ability and developmental level of the resident.
