We are a program that is based upon a multisystemic treatment approach. This means that we understand that there are many different things that create problems in families’ lives. The ICBTT works with children, teens, their families and communities to find solutions to these problems. We work with all the systems that are involved in the lives of the families who come to our program, e.g., home, school, community, work, peers.
We are a short term, but intensive program. We generally work with children, teens and families for a 3-8 month period of time. During this time we meet with children, youth, families and other systems (education, community, justice) as often as needed, which might be once a week or even up to three to four times per week.
