Covenant House Vancouver’s Integrated Case Management Team (ICMT) is made up of registered Social Workers who provide youth-focused, coordinated, and all-encompassing services to youth. Social Workers seek to focus and build upon the unique gifts and strengths that each young person possesses.
Integrated Case Management may include:
- Assessments of over-all health (mental, physical, and spiritual)
- Creation and implementation of weekly case plans
- Short and long-term goal setting
- Referrals to and coordination of specialized services like psychiatrists and other medical professionals
Covenant House Vancouver takes a Trauma-Informed approach to caring for young people. Trauma-Informed care involves understanding, recognizing, and responding to the effects of all types of trauma. Trauma-Informed care also emphasizes physical, psychological and emotional safety and helps youth rebuild a sense of control and empowerment.
