Touchstone partners with individuals, families, schools and other service providers to deliver the optimal continuum of health, education and social services, with an emphasis on services that support individuals and families to acquire the skills to live productive and responsible lives.

Touchstone’s Infant and Early Childhood Program (IECP) provides a comprehensive array of services to children birth to 6 years old. The team begins with a comprehensive developmental, history and trauma assessment to identify the appropriate interventions. Our IECP program also works closely with the Department of Child Safety (DCS) to achieve permanency for children. The team works with foster families to prevent foster home disruption, and with biological families when reunification is the goal.

Touchstone’s youth outpatient programs and services consist of several different therapy programs providing services to youth ages 7 through 17 years old. Our Therapists are trained and supervised in a trauma informed approach. Individual therapy may be provided but our clinicians begin with a family centered and family focused approach to assist the child in the natural environment. Some of our programs include Outpatient therapy, Functional Family Therapy, Multisystemic Therapy, and High-Needs Case Management. Learn more…

Functional Family Therapy (FFT)

FFT is an evidenced-based family therapy program designed for youth from ages 11 through 17 that have behavioral and conduct problems. FFT engages the family to change through multiple interventions which include a relational and strength based focus. The cognitive and behavioral component is integrated into systemic skill training in family communications, parenting and conflict management skills. Our Service delivery takes place in the home or community. Some of our FFT therapists are Spanish speaking and language assistance is provided if necessary.

Multisystemic Therapy (MST)

Our MST program is an intensive evidence-based family therapy program that has been proven effective in treating youth with serious acting out behaviors from ages 11 through 17. MST helps empower parents with skills and resources needed to independently address the challenging behaviors of the youth.  MST views individuals as part of a complex network that includes the family and community. MST strives to promote behavior change in the youth’s natural environment using the strengths of each system. Our service delivery takes place in the home or community.  Some of our MST therapists are Spanish speaking and language assistance is provided if necessary.

Multisystemic Therapy for Problem Sexual Behaviors (MST-PSB)

MST-PSB is clinically adapted from the MST model to address youth from ages 10 through 17 who have problematic sexual behaviors. MST-PSB relies heavily on family therapy as a mechanism of change for the youth and family and draws on models of parent training, Structural and Strategic Family Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and social skills building. Ensuring that client, victim, and community safety is the paramount mission of the model.  Service delivery takes place in the home or community. Some of our MST-PSB therapists are Spanish speaking and language assistance is provided if necessary.
