The Full Circle Program

The Full Circle Program (FCP) at Sankofa Psychological Services is a unique referral-based child and family approach to treatment that includes parent meetings, child psychological counseling, and collaboration with all other willing caregivers, teachers, and service providers involved in the child’s system.

The FCP Team works closely with children and families struggling with externalizing behaviors, ADHD, and emotional dysregulation that impact the child’s functioning at home, school, and/or in the community.

The FCP Approach

The Full Circle team conceptualizes children from a family systems approach, utilizing features of cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, psychodynamic play therapy, and family therapy to improve behavioral outcomes.

FCP works with a limited number of families at a time to ensure the best quality of care and collaboration with other family members, care providers, and stakeholders in the child’s life.

The FCP Model

The Full Circle Program is a different approach that pulls together care providers and stakeholders to implement an individualized therapy plan for each child. FCP aims to coordinate the many parts of a child’s life to improve treatment outcomes, maintain school progress, and create greater harmony in family life.

The Full Circle Program is appropriate for those who are prepared to commit to making changes to see changes in behavior. FCP is best suited for families with children ages 2-12 who are experiencing psychological and behavioral challenges. Many of our families have children who have been hospitalized, or children whose behaviors are escalating and may require a higher level of care.

We’re here to help answer questions and help find the right counselor.
