The Spanish Community Center (SCC) is a Latino-operated, community-based, social service agency offering behavioral and mental health intervention services that enable individuals and families to meet the challenges within today’s scope of “problems of living.”
Clients receive an individualized treatment service plan that includes a thorough clinical assessment, proposed treatment interventions that focus on the clinical feature needing intensive outpatient service, and projected outcomes that can be achieved though strengths-based treatment.
Working together, families identify roles, expectations, and negative patterns while exploring the overwhelming effects of behavioral problems and/or substance abuse on the family system.
Within a supportive environment, parents learn better ways to handle frustration, guilt, apathy, and overwhelming feelings. Parents are taught communication skills, limit-setting, and ways to identify negative family patterns and substance abuse. Family Therapy is often incorporated to educate family members on the client's mental illness. Family members are strongly urged to participate in sessions.
Our Parent Counseling works with families raising children and adolescents with developmental disabilities. The team’s goal is to help families improve coping with everyday stressors as well as to develop strategies to address more complicated behavioral and emotional issues. Our clinical team members are master’s level mental health therapists trained in the Positive Behavior Support model.
