The ASAP Center uses the evidence-based neuro-relational framework, PersonBrain® Model, which relies on an understanding of the development and functioning of the brain, the impact of trauma, and the value of human connectedness in supporting children and young people facing traumatic stress. Trauma affects a person’s sense of hope, an essential clinical ingredient, that must be restored through a loving, committed life-long relationship with a family. This framework informs and plans across six developmentally critical domains – Relational, Experiential, Eco-cultural, Biological, Regulatory, and Academic – with the goal of restoring a sense of safety, security, relatedness, and efficacy. The ASAP Center stabilizes presenting symptoms and informs the Child and Family Team of appropriate therapeutic settings considering current mental health symptoms of each child. Key components include:
- Family Team Meeting (FTM) within five days, every two weeks thereafter
- Culturally sensitive; Trauma informed
- Neuro-Relational Strengths & Needs Profile (NSNP) & other assessments as needed
- Casa Pacifica’s direct care & clinical staff are in constant "family finding" mode
- Coordinate youth's support team while in placement & "aftercare" services
- Specific placement recommendations & intervention plan provided
- Follow-up guidance and support
