School Consultation

CABH therapists have consulted with numerous schools in the St. Louis area regarding the mental health needs of children and adolescents. Our school consultation services focus on a systemic approach and include:

• Behavioral Consultant

A CABH therapist works at a school on a weekly basis as a consultant to teachers and administration about the behavioral issues presented by various students. The behavioral consultant’s duties are determined based on the needs of the school but can include student observation, short-term interventions with children such as crisis intervention, consultation with faculty about classroom management, consultation with administration about strategies for addressing the mental health needs of children, and consultation with families about seeking appropriate services for their children.

• Faculty Consultation

A CABH therapist meets with the faculty or a selected group of the faculty to discuss specific at-risk students. The consultant provides guidance about possible interventions and ongoing education about mental health issues affecting children and adolescents.

• Crisis Intervention

A CABH therapist provides short-term assessment of crisis situations in the school and makes recommendations about how to best resolve the situation. Examples include assessing a child who is believed to be at risk for self-harm or harm to others and facilitating short-term group therapy for students displaying problematic behaviors.
