Stars Behavioral Health Group delivers quality mental health and social services throughout California with proven results
Life can be tough sometimes, whether you’re a child, teen, adult or simply a family member trying to support someone who is hurting. Since 1988, we have provided services to support individuals and families to help them find their own skills and strengths even when they’re battling the results of trauma, mental illness, neglect, substance abuse, or other issues. Today we serve more than 25,000 children, youth and families annually at more than a dozen different program sites in California. The most rewarding part of our work is seeing people overcome tremendous challenges, grow, and change.
- Brief Strategic Family Therapy (BSFT) — a short-term, family systems framework that typically includes 12-15 sessions of 60-90 minutes over three months. This intervention is designed for youth 17 years of age with conduct disorders, delinquency and substance use.
- Aggression Replacement Training (ART) — a structured, psychoeducational intervention primarily for adolescents with or are at-risk of aggressive/antisocial behavior. It includes three structured interventions — Skillstreaming, Anger Control Training and Moral Reasoning Training.
- Transition to Independence (TIP) — an individualized, comprehensive system of care for TAY ages 14-25 with serious emotional/behavioral difficulties. This strengths-based approach is based on the SODAS problem-solving method (Situation, Opportunities, Disadvantages, Advantages, and Solutions).
- Structured Psychotherapy for Adolescents Responding to Chronic Stress (SPARCS) — based on three empirically validated interventions that were adapted to address topics relevant to adolescents exposed to chronic trauma. Either a group or individualized intervention, SPARCS is designed for youth ages 13-21.
