Life Adjustment Team
The Life Adjustment Team provides effective in-home structure and support that empower clients to live stable, active and productive lives using evidence-based treatment for successful rehabilitation and recovery. While there has been significant progress in the development of new medications that reduce symptoms, equally important is the empowering knowledge and skills clients can attain through state-of-the-art rehabilitation to manage their illness and enjoy meaningful, productive lives.
The Team implements psychosocial rehabilitation programs on a one-to-one basis in the home and surrounding community. Over the past 45 years, this approach has proven instrumental in significantly reducing or eliminating the need for repeated hospitalizations and has helped many clients achieve a satisfying level of successful independent living. All LAT clinicians have a Master’s or Doctorate degree in Psychology or Social Work, and/or are LMFTs or LCSWs. LAT clinicians join the Team with a minimum of several years of experience working with individuals with mental illness.
The focus of treatment with the Life Adjustment Team is determined by an assessment using seven specific domains of functioning. Goals and rehabilitation plans are developed to stabilize clients using a combination of skills training in medication and symptom management, and goal-directed outreach supportive case management services.
