Job Description

The Horsham Clinics Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) for children and adolescence is designed to provide short-term, highly structured behavioral health treatment for youth ages 517. Patients in our PHP for children are generally experiencing a level of psychiatric distress that requires consistent care, but are stable enough to return home after their treatment program ends each day. Children and adolescents participate in programming in separate groups, according to their age.

The goal of partial hospitalization is to offer a less restrictive alternative to children and their families when inpatient treatment may not be the most appropriate avenue for their care.

This program can also serve as an intermediate step for youths who are leaving inpatient hospitalization as they prepare to return to school and their community.

Program highlights:

Tutorial services are available five days a week by a Pennsylvania-certified teacher

We use a reward system for behavioral modification

Treatment is provided by board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrists

We complete comprehensive after care planning to provide patients with the appropriate level of care after they leave the program

We offer individual, group and family therapy

Counselors lead group therapy sessions. Among the topics covered in these sessions are:

Anger management

Conflict resolution

Coping skills

Social skills training

We use a number of treatment modalities to help patients, including art, music and recreational therapy

Masters-level clinicians at The Horsham Clinic collaborate with schools and other service providers through proper communication and interagency meetings to help reintegrate children or pre-teens into their school setting

We develop treatment plans for each child, and each plan identifies the patients strengths and goals

We also offer medication management, as needed

We offer:

Comprehensive Benefit Package

Competitive base salary

Collaborative team approach with Evidence Based Practices, where patient care is our Top Priority
