Dr. Friedman, a founder of the Warwick House, is a respected leader in the child welfare and mental health community. A distinguished academician in the field of social welfare, he has conducted noteworthy research in the areas of foster care, adoption and residential treatment. This includes his contribution to the in-depth look at the foster care system by Ira Schwartz entitled Kids Raised by the Government.

Based on his research and practical experience, Dr. Friedman pioneered the Intensive Treatment model utilized at the Warwick House. The Warwick model is dedicated to the principle that children are better raised and served in family settings, creating the goal of achieving a shorter length of residential treatment stay, by forging a “Family Partnership” to achieve systemic family treatment. This requires the family to be involved in every aspect of their child’s treatment. Our program encourages families to get involved in the activities at the Warwick House, to participate at team meetings during the course of treatment and commit to designed therapeutic stays overnight at the House. However, treatment is also provided in the child’s home(s), as well as in the therapeutic environment of our facility. The home component is unique to the Warwick House and has demonstrated its value as evidenced by successful outcomes of children stabilized in family settings, biological, foster or adoptive and a reduced length of stay achieved by the program.

Treatment plans are formulated to include three primary Child Welfare goals of safety, permanency and well being of the child and their family, exhibited by mental health objectives in order to reach these goals. Treatment effectiveness relies on collaboration focused on re-connecting families to other community-based services, so discharge planning begins at admission. Treatment fidelity is maintained by ongoing supervision of all clinical staff, e.g., primary therapists and milieu counselors on a weekly basis, to assure effective treatment plan implementation. The program focuses on data collection as part of its effort to establish an evidence based practice, as well as serving as its goal of serving as its own learning center, as this fosters the development of new strategies and interventions for distressed families.

He has taught for over ten years in a variety of classroom settings including a charter school in Southwest Philadelphia, an inclusive preschool setting in Bucks County and Easter Seals of Southeast PA. His classroom experiences range from working with non-verbal children with special needs to establishing a sense of understanding and cooperation amongst diverse groups.

Mike’s education and management philosophy focuses on the importance and universal benefits of inclusive programming by creating a positive, supportive work environment.

As a proponent of Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS), Michael and his staff believe that there are no “bad” kids, just sad choices. Just as adults can make mistakes along the way, children can easily do the same.

His love for teaching and working with children began at an early age. Mike helped his mom as babysitter and volunteered extensively to work with young children during his teens. Many of the mentoring relationships he forged during those years remain strong to this day.

 Mike and his staff guide even the youngest of children in building resiliency, to step up and try again. They bring a level of joy and excitement to the classroom that is contagious. 

Mike has a demonstrated ability to help his students continue to reach or even exceed the established expectations. Whether a student, parent or a caregiver, you will feel his support and know that you are encouraged to meet any challenge.

Mr. Mikes’ colleagues and former students agree that you will never observe him giving up on a child, a parent or a member of his amazing staff. Every circumstance allows for a positive moment for praise as an accompaniment to the lesson to be taught. 

Mr. Mike lives in Bensalem with his two sons. He coaches and is a Director of Intramural Soccer at Parkwood Youth Organization minutes away from BBA. He has coached 3-5 year old soccer for the last 4 years and continues to instill lessons of sportsmanship, empathy and self-regulation both on the field and off.
