Listed below is a brief description of each of our internship programs
Masters level Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility (PRTF)
- TLC’s Psychiatric Residential Treatment homes are designed to serve children (6-18) who are in JJA or SRS custody or private placement and need intensive/collaborative clinical, psychiatric, and medical services. Children that are placed in TLC’s PRTF demonstrate a need for careful assessment, close monitoring, and more extensive treatment than can be provided on an outpatient, community-basis. These children have typically experienced multiple “failed” placements, including their own home, school, foster care, detention, hospitalization, and other residential placements. While Community Mental Health Centers in the state of Kansas try every possible avenue to treat children in their community or county of origin, this is not always possible. Therefore, TLC’s PRTF serves children from both local agencies and from counties all over the state of Kansas.
Street Outreach Services
- Street Outreach Services (SOS) provides services to youth ages 12-17 who are homeless, at-risk of being homeless, and/or are runaways living on the streets the Greater Kansas City metro area and Lawrence. The goal of this mobile community based unit is to provide safe and healthy alternatives to youth by assisting them in either reconnecting with their family of origin (if safe to do so) or in finding shelter, housing and/or other concrete supportive services that may aid the youth in getting off the streets. Street Outreach Workers are able to provide immediate resources like nonperishable food items, hygiene items, blankets, and some clothing items. In addition to this, SOS provides crisis intervention, family mediation, assistance with transitional living, employment, educational opportunities, and health care resources.
Education: Must be pursuing a Bachelors degree from an accredited college or university.
