Treatment Planning

Client Centered Planning (CCP)

Mariam’s Footsteps Inc. collectively designs a customized treatment plan for every client served in both the residential program and longer-term Family Support programs.  In conjunction with the client, the guardian, and/or other persons (e.g.  Aboriginal/Cultural resource person, etc.), a Client Centered Plan (CCP) is formalized through discussion and review of referring issues, concurrent planning and the needs of the individual or family.   The CCP will be developed within 45 days of admission to the program and reviewed, at minimum, once every 90 days up to and including discharge.  The CCP is both supplementary and complementary to any concurrent planning made by children’s services authorities.

All CCPs will contain the following components:

  • a statement that identifies reasons for involvement/continuing involvement in the program;
  • defined issues to be addressed and specific goals to be achieved during the treatment phase;
  • identification of individual and/or family strengths and assets that can be further developed;
  • program services and tasks to achieve the indicated goal;
  • anticipated responses by the child, youth and/or family to the services/strategies;
  • indicators of success to identify progress towards and when the goal has been achieved;
  • future and/or discharge planning complete with transitional supports;
  • community connections;
  • any other significant planning (e.g. safety plan, restrictive procedures, cultural, etc.);
  • timeline of three (3) months in which to review the above and develop modifications; and,
  • documentation that clients have been reinformed of all rights.

A CCP may, if necessary, include a restrictive procedures sub-plan to facilitate the use of restrictive procedures should it be a part of a planned intervention to modify extreme behaviors of a child or youth in the residential programs of Mariam’s Footsteps Inc.  Mariam’s Footsteps Inc. will ensure that this plan clearly identifies and monitors strategies used.  Review of the sub-plan will occur on a monthly basis and be reported formally in CCP review meetings every three months. 

The intent of the CCP through Mariam’s Footsteps Inc. is to address referral issues, ensure a quality of care and treatment to clients while providing opportunities to succeed.  Under the Child Welfare Outcome Indicator Matrix for children in care, Mariam’s Footsteps Inc. will direct goal development in alignment with the matrix and the unique needs of the client.  The areas of safety, permanence, well-being and family/community support are used to develop all CCPs.

Specific Program Planning (SPP)

Applicable to shorter term programs including Drive, Assisted Visitation and emergent Family Support, Mariam’s Footsteps Inc. utilizes Specific Program Plans (SPP) to address standard referral issues.  This is in alignment with accreditation standards and allows for standardized goals while being specific to the client needs and referring issues.  The strategies developed to achieve standard goals are client specific.  In conjunction with the client, the guardian, and/or other persons (e.g.  Aboriginal/Cultural resource person, etc.), the SPP is formalized upon intake and reviewed on a monthly basis.  Should the client require longer term or more intensive intervention, Mariam’s Footsteps Inc. may work with the client to develop a CCP if applicable.  The SPP is both supplementary and complementary to any concurrent planning made by children’s services authorities.

All SPPs will contain the following components:

  • a statement that identifies reasons for involvement/continuing involvement in the program;
  • standard issues and goals to be addressed during the treatment phase;
  • identification of individual and/or family strengths and assets that can be further developed;
  • program services and tasks to achieve the indicated goal;
  • anticipated responses by the child, youth and/or family to the services/strategies;
  • indicators of success to identify progress towards and when the goal has been achieved;
  • future and/or discharge planning complete with transitional supports;
  • community connections;
  • any other significant planning (e.g. safety plan, restrictive procedures, cultural, etc.);
  • timeline of one (1) month in which to review the above and develop modifications; and,
  • documentation that clients have been reinformed of all rights once every three (3) months.

A SPP may, if necessary, include a restrictive procedures sub-plan to facilitate the use of restrictive procedures should it be a part of a planned intervention to intervene with extreme behaviors or circumstances.  Mariam’s Footsteps Inc. will ensure that this plan clearly identifies and monitors strategies used.  Review of the sub-plan will occur on a monthly basis in conjunction with the SPP. 

The intent of the SPP through Mariam’s Footsteps Inc. is to address referral issues, ensure a quality of care and treatment to clients while providing opportunities to succeed.  The areas of safety, permanence, well-being and family/community support are used to develop all SPPs.
