Progressive Option clinicians are licensed by the State of New Jersey and are trained in a variety of areas including but not limited to individual and family therapy to address issues surrounding oppositional defiance, attention deficit disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety disorder, depression, PTSD and parent-child conflict.
These services are delivered by one of Progressive Option’s bachelor’s degree level direct service providers to help decrease risky behaviors. The Behavioral Assistant (BA) provides services in the child’s home or community. The behavioral assistance services build on the child and family’s strengths while focusing on behavioral modification and developing better coping skills.
IIC mental health rehabilitative services are intensive community based, family centered, mental health services delivered by a master’s level clinician working under the supervision and guidance of a licensed member of Progressive Option’s core support team. Services are delivered as a defined set of interventions and within the context of an approved service plan written by a clinically licensed practitioner to target the children’s behavioral and emotional needs and are provided in the child’s home and/or community.
In situations in which a family is assigned to both BA and IIC Therapist, these team members work collaboratively to improve life domain functioning. They work as a unit to provide more focused and intensive complimentary services. They communicate on a consistent basis about family’s progress. The licensed IIC therapist will develop the overall treatment plan, as well as the specific Behavioral Assistance Individual Service Plan (BAISP).
Biopsychosocial Needs Assessments are evaluations completed by one of Progressive Option’s clinically licensed clinicians. The BPS Assessment is a comprehensive clinical assessment geared to identifying both child and family’s strengths and needs pertaining to behavioral health, substance use, and intellectual/developmental disabilities for the purpose of developing treatment goals.
