Clinical services are an integral part of our successful, whole-child focused program for your student. Clinical staff assess and support the behavioral and mental health of Guild students. The Clinical Services Department is responsible for three separate, but equally important aspects of Guild services, i.e. student services, behavior and counseling. Under the supervision of a Licensed Psychologist and Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA), members of the clinical team provide case management, behavior modification, support and counseling services.
The Clinical team consists of skilled Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs), behavior clinicians/specialists, mental health clinicians, expressive therapists, social workers and psychologists who use a variety of strategies to improve your student’s behavioral, coping and interpersonal skills. The clinical staff also is charged with providing the needed home-school connection and the necessary connection to outside agencies, especially at times of transition.
If your student has become increasingly more aggressive and self-injurious with unsafe tantrum behaviors that cannot be safely managed, then the combined treatment modalities provided at The Guild will meet your student’s needs. You will see that along with Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), we offer counseling services to those who require it, and psychiatric services to all residential students. Many times The Guild’s combined treatment approach will successfully address behavioral issues when medication, ABA, or counseling alone will not.
