Domains of Functioning

Expert Clinicians Delivering High-Quality, Effective Mental Health Care

The Life Adjustment Team helps clients manage their illness and improve their quality of life by addressing the Seven Domains of Functioning. This approach fosters self-confidence, direction, and satisfaction through social networks, recreational activities, personal business, and family ties.

Psychiatric / Medical

The Life Adjustment Team was built on the principle that we all have certain needs that must be met to live happy, healthy lives. When one’s ability to meet these needs is impaired, relationships, employment, and one’s quality of life suffers.

Social / Interpersonal

Appearance, attitude, and confidence have a major impact on how one gets along with other people. The Team offers support and training in social problem solving and basic conversation skills.


Using leisure time to recreate adds balance to life. Inactivity often results in boredom, which produces stress and negatively impacts stress-vulnerable illness. The Team uses recreation to motivate people to become active, enhance social networking, improve physical and mental health, and build self-confidence.


Planning, budgeting, and tracking are essential skills for independent living. The Team teaches organizational skills and systems for time management and money management and can also address all activities of daily living.


Family relationships often become strained, even when family members offer to help. The Team can assist with communication and problem solving within the family and can assume the management role in treatment.

Education / Vocation

The overarching goal of recovery is to enjoy a useful and productive life. The role of The Life Adjustment Team is to help define our client’s abilities and talents, provide direction to create short, medium, and long-term goals, and implement the plans to carry them out in a supportive, respectful and empowering manner.

Belief System

Our belief system is a combination of our experiences, knowledge and insights. When faced with a difficult situation in life, we tend to focus on the problem and not the solution, which leads us to fear-based decision making. What we focus on determines our state of mind and attitude. It is essential to teach clients to focus on solutions by developing a positive attitude toward rehabilitation based on believing in themselves and the treatment team.
