Behavioral Health

Comprehensive Symptoms Management Curriculum — Specifically designed for the most serious and persistent mental illness, this easy-to-implement new curriculum is based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI change model), social learning theory (skills modeling, practice, and mastery), and selected Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) skills.  Based on a program at use at Riker’s Island Jails, this comprehensive, 50-hour program addresses a variety of common symptoms as well as specific overlays for Psychotic Spectrum and Mood Disorder symptoms.

The program makes a clear connection between client changes (med compliance and new coping skills) and feeling better (symptom frequency, intensity, and duration).  It includes critical overlays for self-injury and anger/aggression/violence, along with a comprehensive set of skills for interpersonal competence.  An emphasis on Situational Confidence in facing high-risk situations addresses acting out behaviors, with specific tools including Situational Confidence Questionnaires.

The Bridge —Designed initially to provide residentially-based cognitive behavioral therapy in mental observation units at Rikerís Island Jails in NYC, this flexible, modular program offers a solid, CBT-based approach for mentally ill participants, enhanced with selected Motivational Interviewing (MI) tools, DBT elements, and critical coping skills.

The Bridge features a core of 40 sessions, divided into four 10-session units, and two 10-session mental health relapse prevention units for a total of 60 hours. An additional 12-session Managing Aggression and Violence element is also provided, making a program total of 72 hours of programming. Each themed unit provides a brief stages-of-change based approach, sequentially addressing precontemplation, contemplation, and key preparation/determination action steps. Shaped for this population, they provide structure for staff, address key treatment outcomes, and include summary elements within the curriculum to support program documentation. A critical advantage of this modular approach is that it provides a high quality outcome-focused resource without mandating a closed group programming model. This approach is designed to support both in-facility and community programming. [Download a PDF flyer with more details!]
