Program Description

The Consultation and Assessment Team conducts psychological evaluations on children who have been removed from the home due to severe abuse and/or neglect to answer diagnostic questions and to aid with treatment and placement planning. CAT also conducts psychological evaluations of parents who have had their children removed in order to determine treatment needs, assess risk factors and assist with family reunification planning. All families are involved with the Child Welfare System, and referrals come from Children and Family Services social workers, or from Intensive Care Coordinators (ICCs) who are part of Contra Costa County Children’s Mental Health. Consultation with social workers and the gathering of extensive collateral information is also necessary. Trainees write detailed written reports, which go to the court addressing treatment recommendations, risk assessment and reunification planning.

Trainees will receive assessment-specific individual and group supervision; additionally they will participate in didactic training and case conferences with the Children’s Mental Health Clinic.

Although this is primarily an assessment site, trainees will be expected to carry one ongoing therapy case, arranged in coordination with the Children’s Mental Health Clinic, during the year.
