Children’s Community Based Behavioral Health Services (IBHS) Group Services

Group Services are structured therapy sessions that use community-based activities specifically designed to meet the child’s or adolescent’s mental health treatment needs. “Teachable moments” provide opportunities for children and adolescents to experience success in this setting.

WellSpan Philhaven’s mindset that “treatment is teaching” allows children and adolescents to practice skills they can use in other settings and situations, to build confidence.

Group sessions are offered depending on age, needs and goals. Young people may attend group sessions from one to five days per week, as determined in their individual assessment.

Groups are supported by evidenced-based curriculums.

Topics may include:

  • Relaxation
  • Social Skills
  • Coping Skills
  • Problem Solving
  • Self-Control
  • Self-Expression
  • Emotional Regulation

Caregivers form an integral part of group services and are offered a variety of opportunities to participate.
