New Horizons provides Intensive In-Home Family Treatment (IIFT), a novel, effective treatment approach developed by Paul Sunseri, Psy.D. IIFT is designed for high conflict families with a child or adolescent presenting with significant behavioral challenges such as depression, anxiety, highly oppositional behavior, and self-harm. It is designed to help stabilize children in their home who might be at risk for hospitalization and residential treatment or for cases in which weekly outpatient therapy has been ineffective.
The theoretical foundation of IIFT is based on research that shows improving healthy family dynamics is an effective way to address child and adolescent mental health problems. Additionally, family therapies have almost 40 years of research to support their effectiveness relative to individual therapy alone.
IIFT is provided by a team of very experienced, highly skilled clinicians that work with your family to restore positive connections in the home and reduce the child or teen’s problematic behavior.
In most cases IIFT can be covered by private health insurance less any usual co-pays or deductibles.
Please note New Horizons only provides IIFT; if you’re looking for individual therapy for your child or adolescent we would be happy to make a referral.
