Taking on this new role can be a challenge. Here are some resources that may be helpful in working with affected families.
What is PSB-CY and what is not
While difficult to define, there are guidelines to consider when an incident has been reported. The behavior may be classified as (1) normative, (2) cautionary, or (3) problematic. For more information and a helpful chart, please click HERE.
What steps to take when PSB-CY is reported
FAP must evaluate the incident using the Non- Clinical Referral Tool (NCRT). If problematic, FAP activates the Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) to review the referral, address safety needs, and determine a course of action.
