Using A Placement Consultant for Parental Support for Therapeutic Programs for Teens

Using A Placement Consultant for Parental Support for Therapeutic Programs for Teens

Therapeutic Consultants or Therapeutic Placement Consultants offer a unique skillset in supporting families who are seeking out-of-home placement for their loved one. 

This may include: 

  • Residential Treatment Centers (RTC) for short-term or long-term lengths of stay,
  • Substance Abuse Treatment Centers, 
  • Eating Disorder Treatment Centers, 
  • Wilderness Programs, 
  • Therapeutic Boarding Schools, and 
  • Failure to Launch programs.

The role of the Therapeutic Consultant or Therapeutic Placement Consultant is to immerse themselves in a quick and thoughtful research process to gain a clear understanding of struggles and strengths from many perspectives.  This includes feedback from professional and personal resources, as well as evaluations, grades, or social media. 

Next, they provide families with feedback, education, and recommendations toward the right level of care that best matches their loved ones needs, while helping families feel empowered in their decision.  

Further, they secure availability, help implement the plan, and then provide case management that includes communication, advocacy, trouble shooting, and transition planning.  

If you are seeking placement outside of the home, make sure you ask the Therapeutic Consultant or Therapeutic Placement Consultant if they travel to visit schools and programs, as this is a critical piece in understanding how to best match a loved one with the right environment.  

With so many options out there, and a big financial investment for families, seeking guidance and knowing someone with the skills and experience “has their back” can be critical to family’s experience and success.

You can find Therapeutic Consultants or Therapeutic Placement Consultants in the KIDStherapyfinder.com directory of providers.
