RBT Opportunity- Make an IMPACT!

Company: Invo-Progressus
Location: Redding
Posted on: January 11, 2022

Job Description:

IMPACT (Invo Multidisciplinary Program to Address Childhood Trauma) utilizes a multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of youth struggling with mental health challenges, behavioral challenges, and social/emotional issues at home and school. Our interventions draw upon field-tested, evidence-based protocols while encouraging academic progress. Our youth-guided approach draws on each youth's strengths, incorporates family members and other people living in the home (who may not be family members), and group-based interventions when appropriate, with the goal establishing healthy behaviors that will serve the youth throughout his/her lifetime.

The guiding philosophy behind IMPACT intervention services recognizes the severe implications of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). By understanding how to manage or ameliorate the effects of ACEs, youth-guided IMPACT intervention can change children's lives for the better. Research has clearly shown the role of ACEs as root causes of behavior to better understand why a youth is distressed (i.e., early life trauma, mental illness in household, youth witnessing domestic violence) as a means for understanding the etiology of emotional problems, mental illness, and substance use. By identifying root causes of behavior, the IMPACT therapist creates treatment plans that will yield long term positive effects (such as reducing truancy, preventing substance abuse relapse, and maladaptive behaviors). The ramifications of failing to address ACEs, specifically when present at a high threshold in each child, can be catastrophic for their future mental and physical health.

The IMPACT team in Redding, CA services multiple schools providing intensive behavioral and mental-health supports. The team consists of Board-Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs), Registered Behavior Technicians (RBT) and Licensed Mental Health Counselors (LMHC).

The multidisciplinary team works collaboratively to provide wrap-around support to referred students and their families.
