HopeSpoke is the largest provider of children’s outpatient mental health services in Lincoln and southeast Nebraska. Our master level therapists and psychologists provide assessment, treatment planning and therapy services to children ages 1-19 and their families, as well as adults.
Outpatient Services are available to anyone with mental, emotional or behavioral issues – large or small. Treatment options range from brief, solution-oriented counseling to intensive long-term psychotherapy.
We believe family involvement in the therapeutic process is a critical component to a child’s mental health treatment. Individual therapy, and translators are also available for parents if needed.
The Sexual Misconduct Therapy Program (Outpatient) is a specialized service that provides a family-oriented, developmentally-based treatment approach in an outpatient setting for adolescents who have engaged in problematic sexual behaviors. Utilizing strength-based and trauma-informed principles, the program offers weekly individual/family sessions as well as sex offense-specific group therapy to accommodate the needs of the youth. Case management activities and coordination with community partners (e.g., Court/Probation, Department of Health and Human Services) are essential in providing a holistic approach to care.
HopeSpoke also conducts Juveniles Who Sexually Harm Evaluations, which are a unique, but separate, service within the Sexual Misconduct Therapy Program. The evaluations consist of a comprehensive assessment of risk and protective factors for future sexual misconduct, clinical interviews with youth and parents/caretakers, a review of collateral sources, and psychological testing. A team of professionals involved with the program then provides a report that includes recommendations regarding treatment/placement options and supervision considerations.
