    Taxonomy Code: PH-6300.8500

    Agency-supervised private family homes in which foster parents have been trained to provide individualized, structured services in a safe, nurturing family living environment for children and adolescents with significant emotional or behavioral problems who require a higher level of care than is found in a conventional foster home but do not require placement in a more restrictive setting. Therapeutic foster parents receive special training in mental health issues, behavior management and parenting techniques; and implement the in-home portion of the treatment plan with close supervision and support. They serve as integral members of the team of professionals providing services for the child, get the child to therapy and other treatment appointments, write daily notes about interventions and attend treatment team meetings. Therapeutic foster care is considered the least restrictive out-of-home placement for children with severe emotional disorders.

Children having emotional or behavioral disorders are provided with treatment in a family setting, where they are both nurtured and taught social skills as part of their daily treatment. The aim is to return the child to the family of origin when possible, and when not, to prepare them for adoption.AlbanySPECIALIZED FOSTER CARE (SFC) AND FAMILY BASED TREATMENT (FBT)SAINT CATHERINE'S CENTER FOR CHILDREN
