CIBS Program Goals and Beliefs
The goals of the CIBS are to:
- Stabilize your child’s behavior so that they are able to live in your home and access community-based services.
- Help your family develop parenting, communication, and relational skills that support your youth and promote your family’s ability to function.
- Improve your family’s ability to effectively manage any crises.
- Provide seamless coordination of care to your family to minimize multiple service providers across differing stages of treatment.
The service is designed to interrupt and redirect the current cycle of behavior and interactions that affect your child’s ability to live successfully in your home and your ability to manage their behavior. When the service is successful, your child and family will have more stable functioning and be in a better position to benefit from less intensive outpatient mental health services, if needed.
This program has a certain set of underlying beliefs and assumptions that guide the treatment provided.
- Services work best for families when they are integrated with one another and governed by similar treatment values.
- Parents are an integral part of the ongoing collaboration regarding services and decision making for their family.
- The family is the focus of treatment.
- Strengths within the child or family are leveraged for change whenever possible.
- The child is best treated within their home/ family along with their other natural support systems.
- Small changes help produce larger changes over time.
