MANAGED CARE – THERAPEUTIC BEHAVIORAL SERVICES (TBS) FOR CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS
Stanford Sierra Youth & Families’ Therapeutic Behavioral Services(TBS) are available for children and adolescents with higher complex needs who would benefit from short-term behavioral support in addition to other mental health services they may bereceiving. Our team collaborates with the youth, their caregiver, and any other primary mental health provider to address targetedbehaviors that jeopardize the youth’s ability to remain safely in their home. These intensive services focus on changing a youth’sbehavior, while emphasizing the youth’s strengths. Together, staff, youth, and families create and implement a short-term plan, generally lasting 90 days, to help the young person reduce riskybehaviors while increasing coping skills and replacement behaviors.
