Early Childhood Mental Health Treatment (ECMH-T)
This program will provide individual, family and group outpatient therapy to children ages 2-7 years and their families. Our ECMH-T therapists have been trained in the following evidenced based treatment modalities: Parent Child Interaction Therapy-Adapted (PCIT-A) and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and other evidence-based modalities to increase the social, emotional and behavioral well-being of those they serve.
Our ECMH therapists are specifically trained in the early childhood field and work towards Ohio’s Department of Mental Health Early Childhood Mental Health Core Competency Standards. Each ECMH-T therapist must have a master’s degree in social work, counseling or a related field as well as a current Ohio License in counseling or social work.
ECMH Therapists work with both the parent(s)/caregivers and child in helping the child obtain the desired social and emotional well being and recovery through our management of the issues that may be preventing the child from reaching his or her potential. Young children can and do benefit from counseling. Parent(s)/caregiver(s) may learn advanced skills to help better manage their child’s challenging behaviors when other approaches may not have been successful. Families are considered to be full participants in the treatment of their young children.
