Bradley opens day-program for children

Posted 10/1/12

EAST PROVIDENCE – Bradley Hospital recently launched The Children’s Partial Hospital Program, a specialized day program provides comprehensive evaluation and intensive treatment for children ages seven through 12, and their families.

The program operates Monday through Friday during the hours of a typical school day, so children are dropped off in the morning and picked up in the afternoon by a parent, just as would happen at school. The program focuses on family-centered treatment by encouraging parent participation in each child’s evaluation and treatment, as well as requiring twice-weekly family therapy sessions, and offering a multi-family group as well.

The primary goal of the program is to help children safely live at home while offering them and their families the opportunity to work on emotional, social, and behavioral difficulties that occur at home and in the community, according to program director Anne Walters.

“For children who are having severe emotional or behavioral difficulties, it can be difficult for them to compound that with staying away from home to receive in-patient treatment,” said Walters. “This program allows children to receive comprehensive care during the day, five days per week, while still allowing them to be at home with their families each night and on weekends, putting the tools they have learned in the program each day to use at home interacting with their families.”

The Children’s Partial Hospital Program joins two other partial hospital programs already offered by Bradley Hospital, a pediatric program for children up to age six and an adolescent program for 13 to 18 year olds.
