The Solutions Intensive: Kinnect program is a team delivered, clinically monitored treatment intervention program. We provide a specialized, semi-residential placement for youth while the family works in coordinated partnership with their Kinnect Keyworker, behavioural specialists, and in-house psychologist with oversight by Senior Psychologists.
Clinical Review/Updated Integrated Assessment
Clinical review the youth’s historical assessments and interventions to review the diagnosis, determine needs and recommendations
To determine the accuracy of previous diagnoses and identify any additional areas needing to be addressed
To guide parents to pursue healthy growth and development
Healthy Living Plans
The Solutions team works with parents to better equip their whole family with a focus on burnout, coping skills, and stress levels
Kinnect Intensive Keyworker
The key worker coaches and supports parents as they implement new strategies for working with their child. The key worker does not assist parents in the coordination of care for the child.
In this full week program, the youth lives in the Kinnect House three nights per week to assist with stabilization. This treatment placement offers a break for both the youth and family from the tension and patterns that may have become a part of the family dynamic.
Treatment Host Home ~ Step Down or Step In
Youth who are not needing or benefiting from Kinnect House placement, instead, access the Intensive program while their placement is in a Treatment Host Home.
The child and family work with their keyworker and access staff supports as needed. Access one-to-one therapy and participation in recreation and learning opportunities with others is also included.
The goal of this night is to work directly with the child/youth and their family to collaboratively solve problems that break healthy relationships and create chaos in the home environment.
The Kinnect Family night is twice a month for Kinnect program stream families only. Family dinner is included, then groups split off to attend Family Counselling sessions or CPS Behavioral Coaching or the Kinnect Support Group.
We additionally provide a Kid’s club for siblings and youth.
Solutions Parent Night
This Parent Night is available for both the Solutions Outreach and the Kinnect Intensive programs. This program happens twice a month, the Solutions Outreach will be involved with community building and focused training. Training alternates between the two series:
This series focuses on helping parents care for themselves and others in their family while re-building healthy attachment and relationships with their challenging child. The two most valuable strategies for parents are practicing self-care and attachment parenting.
This series supports parents to develop and strengthen parenting techniques and skills that work for their own specific child. Growth and improvement take place along the child’s own unique timeline.
The Solutions Workshop training series runs in 4-month cycles. Workshops are facilitated by Behaviour Specialists, Psychologists or Clinicians and offer caregivers a time of relaxation, direct training, and video-led learning. Solutions Parenting Program follows the Collaborative Proactive Solutions problem-solving process.

Kinnect Intensive Psychological Services
The Kinnect Intensive stream includes individual clinical supports and counselling for each child/youth in the program. Caregivers are encouraged to access individual therapy; however, caregiver therapy is not included in the program rates. If the family identifies counselling as a service need, it may be reviewed with the family FSCD caseworker, with a request to be included in the amended contract.
