Youth develop competencies in the following areas: money management and consumer awareness, food management, personal appearance, health and safety, housekeeping, transportation, educational planning, job seeking skills, job maintenance skills, emergency and safety skills, knowledge of community resources, interpersonal skills, legal skills, leisure activities, and housing.

MULTISYSTEMIC THERAPY

Multisystemic Therapy (MST) is a time-limited, intensive family intervention intended to stabilize the living arrangement, promote reunification, or prevent and reduce the utilization of out-of-home therapeutic resources. This approach focuses on the natural environment of the child and family and strives to change how the child functions within the context of his/her home, school, neighborhood and peer group. A major emphasis of MST is to empower the parents of caregivers with the skills and resources needed to become independent in addressing the difficulties that arise in raising adolescents, and to assist the youth in developing life-long coping skills.

Adelphoi is the leading provider of MST Services in the state of Pennsylvania.

PARTIAL PROGRAM

The Partial Program is a school-based program designed to accept children who require a higher level of structure and support than traditional mental health outpatient treatment, but who are not showing the level of acuity that would necessitate mental health inpatient treatment. This allows the child to remain at home in their community while receiving mental health treatment and educational support. The goal of the treatment is to help students replace negative coping skills with pro-social and more effective behavior so that they can return to a less restrictive environment.
