Psychiatric Consultation and Treatment
Life Works offers a psychiatry clinic on the first and third Wednesday of each month. This provides an opportunity for collaboration between board-certified Psychiatrist, Dr. Steve Croley, the participant, and his/her person-centered team members. Psychiatric needs are assessed and treated through evidence-based psychosocial therapeutic treatments and medication management.
Life Works’ therapeutic support team of Licensed Psychologists, Licensed Psychological Associates, and Clinical Social Workers are key components of treatment teams. With a humanistic and integrated therapeutic framework, clinicians utilize evidence-based practices in diagnostic assessments, treatment plans, and individual therapeutic sessions. Additionally, clinicians play an active role through on-going collaboration with the participant’s active person-centered treatment team and Psychiatrist.
Positive Behavior Supports
Through a multi-faceted collaboration between service providers, Behavior Specialists complete a strength-based functional behavioral assessment to identify support needs. Clinicians develop a goal-oriented Positive Behavior Support Plan which includes strategies of strength-based, positive reinforcement that facilitates positive replacement of identified target behaviors.
A team of Licensed Registered Dietitians assist participants with setting and obtaining goals targeted at improving their physical well-being. This includes individual nutrition assessments and treatment plans, diet education, meal planning, caregiver trainings, and monitoring progress of treatment outcomes.
Occupational, Physical, and Speech-Language Therapy
Occupational, Speech-Language, and Physical Therapists provide individual and environment consultation, evaluation, and treatment. Therapists have access to Life Works’ on-site therapy gym for therapeutic service provision. Additionally, therapists collaborate with natural and paid support systems to address individual needs, treatment plans, and maintenance.
