The THRIVE program offers Wraparound (Intensive In-Community or IIC) services, including Licensed Clinicians, Masters Level Therapists, Behavioral Assistants, as well as Needs Assessments through the Division of Child and Families (DCF). DCF was developed to provide comprehensive integrated services to children, adolescents, and young adults who are in need of community based behavioral health services and related supports. These services provide intensive behavioral health interventions to address difficulties experienced by the child and family and to help reduce the need for placement into residential, inpatient, or other more restrictive settings. All services must be included in a plan of care and are authorized by Performcare and the Care Management Organization.
Services Offered Through the THRIVE IIC Program:
Licensed Clinicians (LCSW, LPC, LMFT) or Masters Level Therapists
The IIC Therapist provides services in the child’s home and in the community. The IIC Therapist provides a variety of mental health services including individual and family therapy, evaluation and counseling. These services are time- limited and should focus on transferring skills to the family and transitioning the family to community based services and supports.
In situations where a family is assigned to both an IIC therapist and a BA, the BA and IIC Therapist work as a team to improve life domain functioning. These workers link to provide more focused and intensive complimentary services. They communicate on a consistent basis about family progress. The IIC Therapist will develop the overall treatment plan, in addition to the specific Behavioral Assistance Individual Service Plan (BAISP)
The Behavioral Assistant (BA) provides services in the child’s home or community. The focus is on behavioral modification, skill building and connecting the youth/family to community resources. Behavioral Assistants provide opportunities to observe children in specific environments and provides feedback to the IIC Therapist and the child’s family.
Needs assessments are evaluations completed by a clinically licensed and state certified clinician. This service involves meeting with the child and family in the home or in a community facility for purposes of assessment using a specific assessment tool to evaluate the child and family strengths, needs and goals. Recommendations for length and type of treatment are included, in addition to treatment goals.
