Once your family has been accepted into one of the DePaul FCS programs,
you will be assigned a therapist who will do a one to three week
assessment with you of the problems that concern your family. The
therapist will ask questions about how you and others view the
problem(s). He/she will want to know how long you have been troubled by
this difficulty and about times you may have been successful in
overcoming it. Psychological testing may be recommended to better
understand your difficulties.
After the assessment, the therapist will recommend a treatment plan
to help your family meet your particular goals. Clients and their
parents/guardians are encouraged to be active participants in deciding
what the Treatment Plan will be and in evaluating whether progress is
being made. As such, older child clients and their parents/guardians are
regularly asked to evaluate the services at DePaul FCS. Your
willingness to do so helps us change our services to provide the best
for our clients.
