This is the rejuvenated skill-building service previously offered under the OMH Waiver and OCFS B2H programs.
​One distinguishing characteristic of this program is that its hands-on activities are focused on teaching set skills to the child/youth.


PSR services help to develop new strategies to optimize the development of the youth and assure that they mature age-appropriately, as functional members of their families and communities. 


As with other services, Bendel delivers PSR with cultural sensitivity and trauma-informed efficiency.

Service Components:

Daily-Living Skills
Acquisition, maintenance or re-establishment of daily functional skills so the child/youth can manage or mitigate the effects of physical, emotional, psychological or psychiatric symptoms which interfere with daily living.


Support in managing daily routines – as in health; self-care; medication management, intake and dealing with side effects; setting refill reminders; interacting with health care providers and so on.


Locating community resources that support the personal interests of the child/youth is also one of the services provided under this heading. 

Social and Interpersonal Skills
Teaching new skills with the aim of increasing community awareness, establishing supportive networks, enhancing coping and anger management skills, trigger watch and avoidance, and promoting positive self-image and self-esteem.


These services also help with school work, money management and travel skills, and overall teaching the child/youth how to manage stress and make the most of their day.

Community
Working with the child to develop independent living goals (such as getting a driver’s license and bank account, or renting an apartment). The aim is to enable the children/youth to function in adult society and establish networks within their community. 

Psychosocial Rehabilitation (PSR)

​Rehabilitative services for children and youth (CFTSS)
