Gibault provides treatment to both male and female clients ranging in age from 6-21.  Children are placed at Gibault through a variety of sources, including the Indiana Department of Child Services (DCS), local school corporations, Probation, Medicaid, private pay and Children’s Mental Health Initiative (CMHI). Gibault’s accepted IQ range is 60 and above. Children prescribed Psychiatric medications meet with their Psychiatrist for monthly consultations and medication management. Gibault has a staff psychologist available for specific testing and assessment needs. Gibault operates a comprehensive, year-round accredited school. Gibault is also accredited through the Council on Accreditation (COA).

All children placed at Gibault are provided with a master’s level therapist who conducts regular individual, family, and group therapy sessions. A treatment team of professionals monitors each child’s progress to ensure appropriateness, continuity, and quality of care.  The treatment review team consists of clinical, residential, educational and medical staff, and is involved in the creation and monthly reviews of the child’s treatment plan.  Input from the child’s parent/guardian and placing agency (if applicable) is requested and encouraged as they are a vital part of the treatment team. 

 

Gibault utilizes a trauma-informed approach based on the understanding that the child’s previous traumatic experiences can affect the way the child thinks, feels, behaves, and responds to treatment.  All Gibault staff are trained on the relationship between trauma and symptoms of trauma, as well as trauma-specific interventions. 

 

Gibault has adopted a Stages of Change model based on the Transtheoretical model.  The stages are as follows: Orientation, Thinking/Preparation, Action, and Maintenance.  Children move through the stages of change model as they make progress with treatment issues.  It is a collaborative approach where children are encouraged to take a leadership role in their own treatment by identifying those issues they want to change, and having ownership of how they decide to make those changes. The model is a way to help children understand where they are in their own treatment, and how to move on to the next stage.  The ultimate goal is to transition the child on to a lower level of care.

 

24 hour awake supervision is provided in each living unit.  In addition, Gibault employs two safety and security staff during awake hours and one during over night hours.

DAY TREATMENT & DAY REPORTING

Gibault Children’s Services currently operates Day Reporting/Treatment Services in our on-grounds, accredited K-12 school on our Terre Haute Campus. The target population includes children who create challenges for the local school corporations or who are expelled from school and working toward Indiana High School Equivalency. These students may require considerable time and attention from teachers, administrators, and faculty of the public schools and need intensive supervision. Gibault’s Day Reporting/Treatment program is interested in serving the population of students who are suspended, expelled, truant, or requiring significant resources within the traditional educational environment. These students may be experiencing many issues in their lives other than academic difficulties, such as social estrangement, emotional management difficulties, behavioral disruptions, mental health issues, substance use, victims of abuse or neglect, poverty, and a variety of familial stressors. Our employees have diverse backgrounds in social work, education, and mental health and have multiple years working with children from differing cultures, classes, races, ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientations, and faiths.
