Therapeutic Behavioral Services

A boy smiling.Therapeutic Behavioral Services (TBS) is a specialty mental health service that supports youth with serious emotional challenges. A short-term, in-home program designed in conjunction with the caregiver and a team of mental health specialists, this supplemental service is designed to resolve targeted behaviors that jeopardize the youth’s current living situation and avoid the need for a higher level of care. Therapeutic intervention is administered by a trained TBS coach who provides modeling, structure, support and immediate one-to-one intervention that assists the youth in managing and ultimately changing the troubling behavior.

The plan includes a transition plan that addresses equipping parents and/or caregivers with skills and strategies for creating a positive environment that will provide the family with a consistency plan once TBS is discontinued. TBS is available through both New Haven’s San Diego and Riverside offices. To refer a youth to our TBS program, click here.
