Therapeutic Mentoring can help build your child’s confidence in social settings, school, or anywhere they’re struggling.
Every Child Has Natural Gifts and Talents
Therapeutic Mentoring pairs your child with a trained adult who will help them put skills learned in therapy to use at the playground, after-school program, and other local settings.
Your mentor and CHD therapists will work closely with other important people in your child’s life such as teachers, doctors, caseworkers, and members of your extended family.
Offered to kids in Western Massachusetts through the Children’s Behavioral Health Initiative (CBHI), this unique program teaches kids to solve problems creatively, share their feelings, and develop other life skills.
Above all, our goal is to recognize your child’s natural abilities and build upon them.
Different from programs like Big Brothers Big Sisters, the goal is learning new skills, not just having fun – though it’s perfectly fine if learning is a blast.
We can help your child:
- Resolve conflicts
- Communicate more effectively
- Meet goals set forth in therapy
- Role play new behaviors
- Practice skills in the community
- Find new strategies for success
Therapeutic Mentoring is a mobile service available to clients up to 21 years of age who live in Western Massachusetts.
