Aims
The Kotorisawa Gakuen provides integrated care programs with a special focus on psychiatric treatment taking into account the medical care perspective for emotionally disturbed children, who face various difficulties in daily life. We also actively cooperate with school education and the Child Consultation Center in community to support children’s family, so that children can live with their family, with foster parents, or at a foster home.
 
Key principles
In order for children to concentrate on getting better in a safe and trustful environment,
we embrace the following key principles:

1) Establish a specific guideline of treatment and support for each child
2) Establish an integrated care and education system that consists of medical care,
       psychiatric treatment, day-to-day life support and education.
3) Do not aim for the facility’s self-sufficiency in terms of treatment and support
4) Take quick response and provide effective treatment so that children do not
       have to stay long in the facility
5) Develop care and support programs based on children’s daily behavior
6) Conduct care and support in liaison with communities and children’s original schools

We conduct facility-tours and on-site interview for children and their guardians before admission. Upon confirmation of child’s admission, we sign a contract on the contents of treatment and support program
 
2) In-care
Plan: After one-month period of observation, we formulate individual self-reliance support plan and psychiatric treatment plan.
Do: We give children the psychiatric treatment through group works and social skill trainings in cooperation with medical institutions.
Check: individual support teams have monthly meetings to check and share the progress of treatment and support.
Plan: We conduct assessment sessions, which all staff members attend, and review the individual self-reliance support plans.
 
3) Leaving Care
For the reintegration of families, we conduct parent trainings repeatedly while providing academic and career counseling for children.
We establish support system for leaving children through multiple meetings joined by medical, social welfare and education institutions.
 
4) After Care
We provide counseling sessions both for children and their families even after children left the facility. We also hold a special meeting inviting relevant institutions when the need arises.
