Behavior Coaching provides structured contact and a positive adult role model to youth who could benefit from a healthy professional relationship to build new skills, including social skills and behavior management. Each client receives weekly contact with their behavior coach and will have the flexibility to meet their behavior coach in home, school, or community settings.
The behavior coach will identify short-term and long-term goals with their client to support age-appropriate behaviors, conflict resolution, and problem-solving skills. The behavior coach will explore motivations for change and barriers to change with their client to assist them with progress towards identified goals.
