Job Description

Are you interested in making your community a better place? Come join the team at TBS!!! 

The Therapeutic Behavioral Services (TBS) model is an individual behavioral intervention adjunct to mental health services. TBS helps children, youth, caregivers, and other members of a young person's circle of support to eliminate, reduce, and manage challenging behaviors and increase behaviors that will help them to succeed. The Therapeutic Behavioral Services (TBS) program provides one-to-one behavioral assistance and interventions to clients under 21 years. TBS is as an adjunct to an existing mental health service. Services are available to children and youth, and inclusive of the caregivers. Participants learn to reduce and manage challenging behaviors and learn strategies and skills to increase the replacement behaviors that will enable children and youth to succeed in their current environment. TBS also helps participants transition to lower levels of care (e.g., move from a group to a family home). TBS is available in Contra Costa and Alameda Counties.
