Clinical Services

The Littleton Public Schools clinical team supports students socially and emotionally in order to develop, improve and maintain their social, emotional, mental health status, behavioral skills and insight regarding emotional well-being and success in the school setting. This may include using cognitive behavioral therapy, talk therapy, self-reflection, mindfulness and relaxation skill-building, behavioral management, and/or other psychotherapeutic techniques. Primary interventions may also include evidence‐based programs as well as specific anti‐bullying programs. Services are based on the inpidual needs of each student and may be provided by way of consultation, in-class, small group or one‐on‐one formats. Services are provided by school psychologists, school counselors and therapeutic mental health counselors. Consultation with outside providers is also often a key component.
