Chosen’s Model of Care
All foster, relative, and adopted children have experienced loss and trauma. This trauma affects their brains, bodies, biology and beliefs, sometimes resulting in out-of-control behavior on a daily basis. Often, parents want to give up.
Chosen gives parents the tools needed to keep going so that children can heal and families can thrive.
Since starting our parent education and mentoring programs, 100% of parents who have participated for at least six months have not disrupted their foster placement or dissolved their adoption..
The Chosen Effect: Zero foster disruptions. Zero failed adoptions.
Services are delivered in-home or with telehealth via a secure video connection.
Parents receive life-on-life parent coaching that uses Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI), Trauma Competent Caregiver curriculum, and Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy parenting techniques with a corresponding action plan designed to help families heal and thrive. This accountability-driven, tailored approach results in stronger attachments as quickly as possible.
Therapeutic services and resources
Chosen matches parents with evidenced-based, therapeutic services and resources that meet the needs of their children. These attachment-focused services include Child Parent Relationship Therapy, Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy, Adult Attachment Interviews, and/or trauma-informed therapists.
Targeted case management
This includes referrals to meet educational, medical, occupational, and/or social needs unique to each family.
Trained and certified peer mentors
