-Clinical Systematic Assessments

This program builds on the existing strengths and resources of the family system.  The treatment team collaborates with the family members in developing a "Family Vision."  This "Family Vision" along with the Eco-Systemic Structural Family Therapy model are the foundation for the mental health services delivered by Kids Count/Family Psychological.
