A Behavioral Coach in the Therapeutic Behavioral Services (TBS) program provides behaviorally focused, intensive mental health services to children who have been identified as at-risk for higher levels of care or are stepping down from higher levels of care. Behavioral Coaches work with the client and their families/support networks to provide them with tangible skills specifically tailored to their strengths and needs to address target behaviors. Services for children and families are family focused, strength based, and are provided in the community including, but not limited to, schools, hospitals, and family homes.
Seneca is always looking for ways to actively empower and uplift traditionally marginalized communities. We are honored to lead a nationwide effort, Todo Por Mi Familia, a campaign to find and connect families who sought asylum in the United States to mental health services. Seneca’s agency-wide DEI Advisory Board, Employee Resource Groups, and Language Practice Groups help our employees provide culturally and linguistically relevant services to the families we serve.
