We partner with school districts to support the emotional well-being of students by providing the following services so students can thrive within district.
Commonly, schools will say “ we already have a child study team in place who can offer student support and we can always just add another therapist to our staff if needed.” The problem with this is that on every child study team, case managers are wearing many hats that take away from meeting all of the emotional needs of students experiencing issues. When Sage Thrive partners with your school, we bring a team of experienced support backing our Sage Certified Clinician™ who brings a different subset of skills into your district.
Additional benefits include:
-We Work outside the normal school hours>before/after school, evening hours and summer check-ins to provide family counseling (i.e. not restricted by union contract).
Sage Thrive clinicians can intensively work with both special ed and gen ed populations simultaneously (CST members typically cannot work with Gen Ed students). This flexibility can also prevent a need for classification of students as well as facilitate in the declassification of students.
-Quality Assurance and Supervision: The cases identified can be complex and need a well-trained and supervised clinician. Receive ongoing weekly on-site clinical supervision in addition to phone supervision anytime. This minimizes time that staff and administration need to be consulted so that they can focus on their roles and responsibilities
-Built-in clinical objectivity as a non-district employee that fosters trust and therapeutic relationships with students and families.
-Sage in-house resources for running a variety of process-based or curriculum-based groups (anxiety, anger management, social skills, bereavement, etc.) as well as professional development to meet the district’s needs.
Our Sage Certified Clinicians™ have completed an intensive and advanced Sage certification process which includes:
