MT is an individualized therapeutic service providing intensive one on one intervention within home and community settings. For many reasons, the confines of traditional outpatient therapy may not be adequate to address the issues of children and adolescents who are in severe emotional or behavioral distress.
Mobile therapists, who have a minimum of a Masters degree, collaborate with the Psychologist and other team members to identify the unique therapeutic needs of a child and then provide one on one interventions within the home or other community location. There are many benefits to providing treatment within the natural setting. It allows for family members to be a part of the therapeutic process, when appropriate, as well as helps the client to build coping skills in real situations.
