Because the Family Works© treatment model is highly relational and systems-driven, it requires a deep bench of experienced staff members working together as a team. New Haven has the highest staff to student ratio (1:2.6) in the adolescent behavioral healthcare industry and one of the most experienced. In fact, most of our key team members have been working together for nearly ten years. We're united by our love for family work, our shared therapeutic and educational philosophies, and our care for one another.
Our team members are hired for their strong clinical credentials and experience; once hired, all staff members continue their professional development in the form of seminars, classes, experiential learning, mentoring, case studies analysis, research, and writing. The large size of our team allows for constant supervision and safety, as well as a robust interdisciplinary model in which every department meets together to discuss every girl every week. The result is a treatment plan that is holistic, coordinated, and based on a deep understanding of every girl in our care.
This culture of caring, communication, and professionalism allows us to deliver a clinically based, heart-driven program that heals families.
