PROFESSIONAL SERVICES

Direct/Case Management Services

Direct/Case Management service assignments have a strong focus on client and system strengths and the development of self-care skills that go beyond the disease and symptom focus of a diagnosis.  The overall focus of direct services and case worker assignments is built on the bio-psychosocial model which uses a “person-in environment” perspective to assess strengths and challenges within a systems framework and may incorporate therapy, public or private organizations, case management, administration, and more.  Many times work will involve counseling and helping clients with whatever issues they may be having. This can range from working with individuals to secure a new job, to coordinating rehabilitation programs, and more.  Typically these assignments do not require licensure.

Yes No
 

Clinical/Therapeutic Services

Clinical/Therapeutic Service assignments address individual and family problems such as serious illness, substance abuse, and domestic conflict.  The majority of work will be done in a clinical setting and typically encompasses psychotherapy, formal counseling, skill development, psycho-educational, and more.  Some clinical/therapy assignments may require licensure.
