At Franklin Family Services, our Behavioral Health Rehabilitation Service (BHRS) program has two locations, one in Chambersburg serving Franklin and Fulton counties, and one in Carlisle serving Cumberland and Perry counties. We evaluate each individual referred to BHRS based on his or her needs, and then develop a customized treatment program.
A BHRS treatment team can include a team of up to three clinicians depending on the needs of the client.
Behavioral Specialist Consultant (BSC)
Behavior Specialist Consultant (BSC) provides consultation across the home/school/community setting. The BSC conducts observation and assessment of target behaviors, recognition of pattern behaviors, formulates a plan to improve functioning, and oversees the implementation of an individualized plan to teach replacement skills to the child. The BSC also provides monitoring for treatment interventions and serves as an overall consultant with all systems involved in the child’s life.
Mobile Therapist (MT)
The MT will provide in-home intensive therapeutic services to the child and his/her family, they will work to identify the strengths and needs of the child and family and address deficits such as coping skills, social skills, and anger management. The MT will also address the relationships among various family members and assist the family in improving their interactions. The MT may also conduct services in other locations throughout the community.
Therapeutic Staff Support (TSS)
The primary role of the TSS is to transfer skills to the parent/caregiver or teacher by working collaboratively with them and to provide behavioral support to the child in becoming more functional, productive and independent in his/her natural settings. The TSS utilizes the specific interventions outlined in the child’s individualized treatment plan to help avoid or eliminate socially inappropriate or threatening behaviors, providing immediate rewards and consequences for behavior and providing support to the child and family.
Our therapists provide services in the home, school, and community through a team-based approach to meet the needs of each person. Anyone can be evaluated to see if BHRS services would be appropriate to improve his or her lifestyle.
