Partial Hospitalization Program

This rotation trains residents in short term, group based treatment modalities. The program provides both an alternative to psychiatric inpatient hospitalization as well as a transition from the hospital to the community. Patients attend PHP for 5-6 hours each weekday.

During this rotation residents are involved in goal planning and are encouraged to assume leadership roles for the multidisciplinary team. The program is planned to deepen the residents' knowledge of an intensive group-oriented Cognitive Behavioral Therapy psychotherapeutic approach.  Individual and family therapies are utilized based on the patient's needs. Intensive pharmacological management is employed along with the appropriate psychotherapeutic modalities, including crisis intervention.
