ABOUT OUR CHILD & ADOLESCENT SERVICES DIVISION
In the treatment of children and adolescents, we are known for getting youth in quickly, treating even the most challenging cases, offering helpful parent and family support, and providing quality, compassionate care. Using the nationally recognized Child and Family Team process and with treatment tailored to each person’s strengths, needs, and culture, youth can stay in the home, be productive in school, and have a hopeful future. Integrated health services address both behavioral and physical health issues, and special programs for teens and young adults help them realize their potential and become independent adults. We also collaborate with the Arizona Department of Child Safety to provide families involved in child welfare with comprehensive service plans which integrate all aspects of care and treatment. All members of the team practice in a manner that is consistently mindful of the 12 Principles of The Arizona Vision for Children.
If you are passionate about working with children, young adults, and families and connect easily with other people, this position could be right for you. In the challenging yet rewarding role of a Case Manager, you will facilitate a strategic planning method called the Child and Family Team process. This process supports youths with complex behavioral or emotional needs in achieving their optimum level of wellness through the development of individualized service plans, linkage to community resources, partnership with family members and others involved in their lives, and the coordination of behavioral and physical health care.
You will help the youths and families you serve achieve independence and self efficacy.
You will facilitate or assist in the facilitation of Child and Family Team (CFT) meetings; provide information to CFT stakeholders about community resources and linkages to other services; and ensure CFTs meet as frequently as necessary to meet child/families’ needs.
You will work in members’ homes and out in the community, directly providing skill building interventions such as strengthening communication, social and other living skills. You will collaborate with health care providers and representatives of the educational, judicial and legal systems, using a creative and team-oriented approach to solving problems, and perform case coordination and administrative tasks.
