Psychiatric Technician - HMHI Young Adult Residential Treatment (YACAT)

6/2/2022

Overview

This position provides a safe, supportive, and therapeutic environment for psychiatric patients and assists with the provision of basic patient care needs.

YA CAT Program Overview:

The Young Adult Comprehensive Assessment and Treatment (YA CAT) Program at the University Neuropsychiatric Institute is an elective service that offers a 4-8 week, comprehensive clinical evaluation for individuals of ages 18-30 in a residential environment with the capability of providing stabilization in a supervised setting, either before transitioning to the residential facility or if such stabilization is required following decompensation while at the residential facility.

Unlike an acute inpatient hospitalization, the duration of the YA CAT Program allows for the opportunity to conduct expansive diagnostic and therapeutic interventions. Such interventions include regular psychiatric and medical evaluation, psychological assessment, behavioral and educational/career/vocational assessment, and individual, family, and group psychotherapy.

The YA CAT Program utilizes a multi-disciplinary team of a psychiatrist, psychologist, social worker, nurses, career/vocational specialist, expressive therapists (music, art, and recreation), psychiatric technicians, and dietitians.

The comprehensive nature of the assessment helps to provide diagnostic clarity and guide recommendations for future therapeutic modalities and treatment levels of care.
