Behavioral Health Coaches work with youth and families in their home and other natural environments to identify and support targeted behaviors that that lead to stress. Coaches utilize a cognitive behavioral approach to implement skills and interventions to increase positive communication and behavioral change. Behavior coaches are trained and skilled behavioral health techs who work under the supervision of an Arizona Board of Behavioral Health Licensed Professional.
Coaches work on various skills including anger management, self-regulation, independent living skills, social integration skills, coping skills, and organizational skills as identified through the Child and Family Team process. Coaches work side by side with caregivers and teach them the skills utilized in the coaching process to increase independence and foster success in the home.
Coaches currently work with families in the Mercy Maricopa Integrated Care system and with individuals from adolescents into transition to adulthood. San Tan Behavior Health thrives on ensuring family values and culture drive the coaching process and are part of the strengths-based model of service delivery.
